Girl given ‘bionic’ hand from a local 3D printing club


At Copiserv we like to keep abreast of the latest industry news and developments. This week we were delighted to learn about a 3D printing project in Yorkshire that has utilised this new technology to great effect by creating a ‘bionic’ hand.

The University of Huddersfield’s 3D Printing Society developed the hand for Kelsie after being contacted by the girl’s parents. Kelsie, who is ten years old and from Mold in North Wales, was born without any fingers on her right hand. She was presented with the hand, which is controlled by the movement of her wrist, at a surprise party.

The 3D Printing Society have recently won the National Union of Students (NUS) Society of the Year award for their work. It is great to see this latest technology being used in the local area to such great effect and we wish the Society all the best for their future projects.
