    UNC-Chapel Hill student gives child 3D-printed prosthetic hand (No supers)

     
    Jeff Powell, a UNC-Chapel Hill biomedical engineering student, is using 3D printers at UNC to print prosthetic hands for children.

    Holden Mora is the first child in Chapel Hill to receive one of the hands. Powell wants to start a nonprofit organization that raises funds for children like Holden, whose hands are deformed.

    Watch the video above to learn more about the project.

    If you know a child in need of a prosthetic hand, or would like to help the cause, email Jeff Powell: jeffp@live.unc.edu.
