It has taken eight years, but a boy has finally been able to draw a picture for the first time. Will from Towcester in Northamptonshire was born with no fingers on his left hand and so was never able to hold a pen. But that has now all changed, after scientists from the University of Bedfordshire used a 3D printer to create a new hand for the left hander. Inspired by a device that was created by a scientist in Africa, Will’s new hand is able to read the signals from his arm which allows the youngster to gain full control. His very grateful mother Jo said, “He’ll be able to do complex things like tie his laces, but also simple activities like holding a drink in one hand and an ice lolly in the other. I can’t thank these guys enough. What they’re doing for William is life changing”. Well said.
