Bionic 3D-printed arm ‘gives confidence’ to immature amputees


A Bristol-based robotics company, Open Bionics, has grown a world’s initial medically-certified 3D-printed synthetic arm for amputees.

The Hero Arm, with a synthetic hand, can fit children as immature as 9 years old. Its engine is tranquil by muscles on a residual limb, permitting a user to lift out many tasks as if a palm was real.

Open Bionics wish a £5,000 bionic arm could be done accessible on a NHS.

BBC Click’s Kathleen Hawkins went to accommodate Raimi, who says a arm has given her a new confidence.
