ISABELLA ARM with FATHOM & e-NABLE, 2015
Ava DeCapri (FATHOM Industrial Designer), Dylan Millsaps (FATHOM Summer Intern)
Isabella is 8, loves Care Bears, and was born without a fully formed arm. Ava, Dylan, and I designed a custom 3D printed elbow-actuated prosthetic arm for Isabella inspired by the e-NABLE open source prosthetic community. We first casted a replica of Isabella’s arm and 3D scanned it to create a 3D CAD representation of her unique geometry.
We developed unique features—snap-on fingers, an adjustable wrist, an adaptive grip, and a ratcheting tensioner, which we shared with the e-NABLE community. Check out our instructable at http://www.instructables.com/id/E-NABLE-How-to-assemble-the-Isabella-Arm-by-FATHOM/.
