My son, Aidan, was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome. This caused him to be born without completely formed fingers on his left hand.
We had briefly looked into a prothesis, but were turned off by the high price and the limited functionality of the devices.
I discovered eNABLE in 2015, which is a non-profit global organization that helps match people with limb disabilities to people that can provide 3D printed hands and arms for no cost to the recipient.
There is a large amount of people in the waiting list pool at eNABLE, and not enough builders to provide this service.
I have submitted all the necessary paperwork to form an eNABLE Chapter that can be easily found on the eNABLE website for possible recipents to send me requests. I am also promoting this service through our Facebook page.
With your help I can help give a gift of confidence and functionality to people in need all over the world!
Your donations will be used immediately toward the purchase of a second printer, materials to provide this service, the cost of shipping the prothesis to recipients, for research and development towards improving the existing designs, and possibly creating new ones.
Thank you so much!
