TMSG: UCF Students Giving Free Bionic Arms To Children With Missing Limbs

 

Limbitless Solutions is launching the first U.S. clinical trial of bionic arms for children made on 3D printers. University of Central Florida is partnering with Oregon Health & Science University to fit 20 children with Limbitless' custom-designed bionic arms. Over the course of a year, the children will learn to use the arms through occupational therapy.

Then the results of these 20 children in the clinical trial will help the Food & Drug Administration decide whether to approve the arm to be covered by insurance. 

This announcement puts the company closer to its goal of creating 5,000 bionic arms by 2020 for free. This could save each family as much as $100,000.
