Annika Gets 3D Printed Arm from Dolphin with Prosthetic TailBy Robolab Technologies In 3D printers
Annika Emmert shares a special connection with Winter the Dolphin – the star of the “Dolphin Tale” movies. Annika was born with amniotic banding, resulting in a shorter right arm and a hand that did not form properly. When Dolphin Tale came out, Annika felt an immediate connection with Winter who swims with a prosthetic tail.
Shortly after, Annika got the opportunity to meet the team from Orlando-based Limbitless and get a 3D printed bionic arm. Limitless uses Stratasys 3D Printers to produce their customized limbs, taking advantage of the durable 3D printing materials and the ability to produce practically any geometric shape.
In this informative and emotional video, you’ll see interviews with Annika, her mom, KaRon, and the talented team from Limbitless Solutions – and get to watch both the Stratasys Dimension Elite 3D Printer and Winter the Dolphin in action!
