“I discovered a fairly clear pattern where children not fitted with a functional hand until after two years of age tended to reject prosthetics”, said the former psychology lecturer. He moved soon  to inventive solutions, inspired by the spiders and using a 3D printing machine. He than made a prosthetic arm which is working. But he not stopped, thinking he could help other young amputees. He quit his job in Bangor, one of the smallest cities in the United Kingdom, and has set up a company, Ambionics, in the UK, to develop prosthetics. He needs £150,000 to patent the technology and get it medically tested and certified so he has now launched a crowdfunding campaign to help launch the product. (You can help too !)  The Director of Innovation at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, Dr Nefyn Williams, said Ambionics work “has the potential to revolutionize the care of infants with upper limb differences”.
