3D printing robotic exoskeleton “magic arms” for little girl

3D printing uses continue to multiply. A two year old girl now has full use of her arms by using a 3D printed exoskeleton. Wow.

Emma was diagnosed with arthrogryposis, a condition that limited the use of her arms due to underdeveloped muscles. But that doesn’t stop Emma, who calls her exoskeleton her “magic arms.” Using 3D printing technology, the jacket can be adjusted as Emma grows – and printing replacement parts when something breaks is quick and easy.

3D printing is a tsunami of change that is about to hit the mainstream. The applications are endless and we’re just at the beginning of the revolution.
