A girl born with no left arm can now play violin using 3D printed prosthetic arm made by undergraduate students at George Mason University. 10-year-old Isabella Nicola Cabrera was born with no left arm and is now in her fifth grade at Island Creek Elementary in Fairfax County, Virginia, USA. Despite her condition, she can now play violin because of the prosthetic 3D-printed arm. A group of undergraduate students from George Mason University Virginia USA designed and created the arm for Isabella to play the violin.
Her violin teacher also designed a prosthetic arm which functions exactly like the 3D printed arm but the arm was too heavy for her. The new arm was built by bioengineering students led by Abdul Gouda as their final project for their senior year.
