Prosthetic Hands /
May 2021 - Present
Our latest and most meaningful project to date is our partnership with e-NABLE and a South Florida Christian missionary to make prosthetics for children in Haiti who are missing upper arm limbs or partial hands.
David Tamen, our VP of Engineering, and a senior at Miami Beach Senior High School is certified by e-NABLE, an online group of 3D printing enthusiasts who guide each other, to make the Unlimbited Phoenix Hand. This is a three-part prosthesis that can provide mobility and allow two-handed tasks for a child missing a limb up to an elbow stump.
Helping Hands MB aims to provide these children with hope and kindness. A brightly colored prosthetic to mimic that of a superhero can help a child adjust to the idea of using a prosthetic to help them lead a meaningful life, and most importantly know that they are loved.
Our partnership is with Food For The Poor, a charity funded by kindhearted donors, that provides food and medical supplies to poverty-stricken areas in Haiti, Jamaica, and throughout Central America. Helping Hands MB prosthetics will be fitted to children at the Prosthetic Clinic at Bernard Mevs Hospital in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
