Many of you have seen the adorable little “Iron Man” Rayden who made his way around the globe via the internet with his adorable “unboxing video” when he received his first 3D printed e-NABLE hand and who we have updated you about recently as he began his “Super Hero Training” with his wonderful OT “Aunty Donna” at Therapeutics Associates of Maui.
This morning, he appeared on the CBS Television show, “The Doctors” where his Grandma Rulan was able to share his story and the story of the e-NABLE community who are out there volunteering their time, talents and resources to provide children and adults from all over the world – free 3D printed helper hands too.
If you haven’t seen the video of the episode that was shared on television this morning – go on up and click the image above and spend a few minutes watching a story about another child that feels enabled because of the power of open source designs, global collaboration and a network of passionate volunteers from all over the earth who just want to give the world “a helping hand.”
If you are interested in getting a device created for your child, yourself or someone you know – or if you are a school, a church group, a girl or boy scout troop, a bunch of friends, a makerspace or someone with a 3D printer that wants to help – please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you can get started filling out the intake forms to become either a possible recipient (our devices will not work for every person – but we will do our best to try!) or a volunteer to create these for others!
