e-NABLE has produced our very first Myoelectric arm for a boy named Alex! The look on his face says it all! Congrats to him & my fellow e-NABLERs who helped make this happen!
“My mother taught us that we’re supposed to help change the world…We’re supposed to help make it better. That’s why we did it.” – Albert Manero, UCF Aerospace Engineer – on why he created a 3D printed robotic prosthetic device for 6 year old Alex Pring.
When you are 6 years old and you have finally come to that moment where you just found yourself slowly shuffling your feet down the hall toward your first day of kindergarten…backpack heavy with school supplies and snacks …trying to figure out if you are holding too tight to mom’s hand or if she is holding too tight to yours…and then you stand in the door to peer around and see the faces of the children you will spend the next 10 months with..you usually expect to get asked who your favorite super hero is, which video games you play or how many teeth you have lost already.
