The MORE Foundation is front page news! Our first delivery of a prosthetic hand made on a 3D printer went to a 5-year old Star Wars fan who was born without a fully formed right hand, and we engineered it to look like his favorite “Stormtrooper” characters.
It’s all part of our “Helping Hands” program, which is dedicated to creating low-cost, high technology prosthetic hands for children in need. Using 3D printer technology, we can dramatically lower costs, and help many more children in the process.
But Jacob’s hand was a gift, and you can watch him open the box and quickly take up the challenge of learning to use his new hand. From tossing a ball, to jumping into “Star Wars’ mode and brandishing a ‘light saber’. Plus, he’s now learning to write with his dominant right hand.
A wonderful day, watching a little boy embrace his future.
If you have a child in need of a prosthetic hand, or want to support The MORE Foundation’s effort to help more children, please call 623-241-8724 or contact us via online form.
