Seven-year-old Faith Lennox experienced compartment syndrome when her position during childbirth cut off the flow of blood to her left forearm, irreparably damaging tissue, muscle and bone. After nine months of trying to save the limb, doctors determined they had to amputate just below the elbow.
After years of wearing clumsy and expensive prosthetics, Faith was put on a waiting list to receive a lightweight 3D-printed arm with the help on non-profit E-Nable group and Build It Workspace, all for the unbelievably low price of $50! E-Nable provides open source technology for building the hand, making it economical for anyone with the right printer and set of instructions to create one. Check out this amazing video below of Faith with her new arm!
