Dad builds a bionic arm for his son

The inventive dad is trying to raise £150,000 to develop the “revolutionary” new device for other young amputees.   A father developed a bionic arm for his son by using 3D printer. Ben Ryan came up with the idea after being told there was nothing doctors could do for Sol (10 days old child) until he was a year old. After he heard all rejections because of the age then “he thought he could do better”.

It is reported that he start when Sol was five weeks old using “ odds and sods he had around the house” to extend his arm and help him play. Initially, he used a price of sponge and a bandage as a prop for his son, but soon moved on to more inventive solutions. The father from Bangor quit his job to develop the prosthetic full time and has set up a company, Ambionics, to develop prosthetics for other young infants. And launched a crowdfunding campaign to help launch the product.
