A Little Girl Decided To Make Her Own Prosthetic With A 3-D Printer
Eleven-year-old Baylee Abbott may be missing fingers on one hand, but what she lacks in physicality, she makes up for tenfold in intelligence. After using prosthetics for her entire life, she came across a project called Enabling the Future, which gave her an idea. She could build her own custom prosthetics with a little help from 3-D printing technology.
Once she figured out the basic principles, she enlisted the help of the folks at DoES Liverpool. Together, they came up with a prosthetic that could change thousands of lives.
Not only did Baylee come up with a great, practical tool for her to use every day, but she also found a way to express her creativity. She’s clearly a clever little one, and we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
