Grant #16: Sarah – Fab Lab Hub
Fab Lab Hub works with volunteers to use 3D-printers to create prosthetic hands to be given away to children and adults otherwise unable to afford them. Even the simplest prosthetic hands can cost tens of thousands of dollars, a cost burden too high for many families, especially when children are still growing and may require multiple prosthetics throughout their childhood. The b.good Family Foundation’s $3,000 grant will fund the materials and engineering expertise needed to produce 25-30 prosthetic hands, including the design of a smaller prosthetic hand more suitable for children. We are excited to contribute to Fab Lab Hub as they deploy 3D-printing technology to promote inclusion in our community.
