Florida boy gets prosthetic arm and hand from 3-D printer

ORLANDO Fla. (Reuters) - A Florida boy born without most of his right arm took home a new forearm and functioning hand on Friday made by a team of scientists using a 3-D printer - a method they hope will transform the way prosthetics are made, particularly for children. The prosthetic made for 6-year-old Alex Pring is among at least 50 created in the past year by a diffuse band of international contributors who collaborate online and print them out on 3-D printers, said Jon Schull, a Rochester Institute of Technology scientist who launched the online group last July. #Politics #China #Japan #France #Argentina #United Kingdom #Mexico #opinion
