Magic Arms for the World is a non-profit organization with a mission to help kids like Emma who need "Magic Arms".
I created this story as a case study for Stratasys.
3D-Printed “Magic Arms” Help Little Girl Play and Hug
2-year-old Emma wanted to play with blocks, but a condition called arthrogryposis meant she couldn’t move her arms. So researchers at a Philadelphia hospital 3D printed a durable custom device with the tiny, lightweight custom parts she needed. Emma calls them her “magic arms.”
This story has garnered the attention of the world. The case study we wrote and the video we produced was covered by many major news sites around the world, including Yahoo! News, AOL, Engadget, Telegraph, UK Daily Mail, CNET, Glamour, GlobalPost, NBC, Forbes, Wired, and many more. The video has more than 600,000 views on YouTube to date. We are excited that we were able to bring this amazing story to the world.
