How amazing to read, that just before the Christmas period, Brooklyn Brentnall-Croydon has received a bionic hand.  Now he can look forward to riding the bike he hopes Santa will deliver. 

The hand is a 3D printed one, and all of the parts had to be printed separately before being pieced together to form this amazing prosthesis.

Even the smallest of activites, like drinking from a cup or tying shoelaces present a challenge for anyone who has any kind of upper limb amputation. A prosthesis that allows them to do these tasks, and regain that independence, is invaluable. 

So often modern prosthetics, whilst amazing, are very costly. Now with 3D printing, accesability to a prosthetic limb like this, might be easier for people. 

We hope that Santa doesn't disappoint Brooklyn.....
