Father came up with a basic design for a 3D-printed prosthetic arm that would let his baby grip things
Sol was born two years ago on the day of a solar eclipse. But for his parents, the joy of his birth was clouded by news of a severe blood clot in his left arm.
But the family from North Wales was told Sol would need to wait a year to be issued a prosthetic arm from the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS). What’s more, he would likely have received a standard issue prosthetic arm with a rigid socket and a rubber or silicone hand, with no hand movement, Ryan explains.
