Prosthetic Arm Built Using 3D Printer

26 Feb 2014 by Cheyenne Bolte, No Comments »

Have you heard about the amazing prosthetic arm that Mick Ebeling has created for a kid named Daniel? Well here’s the story. Daniel got both his arms cut off and brought down to limbs after a bomb went off next to him when he was only fourteen years old. A young man named Mick Ebeling heard about this tragic story and knew he needed to help. Shortly after, he immediately took a helicopter to South Sudan. In Sudan, he used a 3D printer to make Daniel a prosthetic arm. He did a bunch of measuring and before you know it, he created the amazing prosthetic arm.  Daniel could once again feed himself. After he made it for Daniel, he taught people in Sudan how to use it to make themselves prosthetic arms, legs, etc. Mick had to leave, however he did leave them the 3D printer to continue to make what they needed. I think it was extremely nice for Mick to make a special flight to help this boy do everyday activities again.  It is amazing how 1 thing can change someone’s life forever.

Here is the link for you to watch for  yourselves! This is very touching. Enjoy!
