High schoolers make prosthetic hand for less than $10

Washington, April 30: A high school class in Rockford, Illinois built a prosthetic hand for a 9-year-old girl for less than 10 dollars.

The students at Boylan High School used a 3-D printer to make the prosthetic hand for Kylie Wicker, from nearby Roscoe, Illinois, who was upset as kids kept staring at her underdeveloped left hand, ABC News reported.

Kylie’s father, Jeromy, found a video online of another father who made a 3-D printed hand for his son who suffers from a similar condition.

The 2,000-dollar-3-D printer was donated to Boylan last fall. After receiving the request from Kylie’s father, the class started their work on the prosthetic hand that would fit over Kylie’s knuckles, to allow her to grasp and hold items as a normal hand does.

Kylie will receive two prosthetics, one would be in pink and another in purple and would cost less than 20 dollars in total. (ANI)
