Magic Arms

Two-year-old Emma wanted to play with blocks, but a condition called arthrogryposis meant she couldn’t move her arms. So researchers at a Delaware hospital 3D printed a durable custom exoskeleton with the tiny, lightweight parts she needed.

This is a heart-warming video that showcases the power of technology to facilitate - in medicine and beyond - the latest discoveries and advances of our time, our world, and our human nature. It is that relationship that powers the frontiers to a better tomorrow.
