I hope you enjoy watching the YouTube video on Emma here http://www.theverge.com/2012/8/5/3219685/wrex-robotic-exoskeleton-arm-3d-printing
It's so great that technology has evolved enough that pieces of equipment can be designed and printed with a 3D printer in order to create the equipment and devices necessary to make the suit to fit Emma so that she can use her arms independently.
In the past, the pieces would have taken much longer to make as they would have needed to be moulded and set. With a 3D printer, pieces can be made within 24 hours.
How awesome are these robotic exoskeleton arms? Emma can do sooo much with her robotic arms. She is more independent, able to feed herself, draw, play, and participate in activities that all kids her age like to do.
