Girl Surprised To Receive 3D-Printed Arm From Designer Who Is Also Missing His Left Arm

Stephen Davies, who is missing an arm, received a free prosthetic from Team Unlimbited e-Nable, and soon became a volunteer for the organization. When Davies learned that there was an 8-year-old-girl from Bristol who also needed prosthetic arm, he saw a chance to pay his good fortune forward: he designed an arm for Isabella, and then drove 200 miles to deliver it to her in person.

“The gadget is so bright and bold that she insisted on wearing it to the local supermarket straight after she got it and proudly strutted around wanting the world to see it,” Isabella’s father told Baby Center. “She’s been keen to show it off and explain how it works ever since she got it and to almost anyone that will listen.”

“This day will remain with me as one of the best days ever,” Davies wrote on his blog. E-Nable is a global network of volunteers that wants to build 1,000 hands for disabled children.
