Technology to Change the World for Good

In His Bio-Mechanics class here at Pentucket High School, Matt Lovett embarked on a project aimed to provide prosthetic hands to children with no insurance, or who have been refused by insurance.  Students were given 6 unassembled hands printed here at PRHS - which they then constructed and “wired” for movement. Matt Lovett used the build process to teach the Bio-Mechanics of the hand while the students had an opportunity to participate in a wonderful international endeavor – this is NOT just a classroom exercise!

 

Matt partnered with Joseph Fairley of Merrimac College who has partnered with a worldwide nonprofit – e-NABLE  whose mission is to provide prosthetics to children by engaging the tens-of-thousands of people around the world that own, or have access to, a 3-d printer to download E-nable’s designs and print a hand for donation to a candidate in their local area.

 

Founded just a few years ago, e-NABLE is a movement that has developed many layers to their goodwill efforts around the world using 3D design and 3D printing to help those in need of replacement hands and arms. Growing from just 100 volunteers to around 7,000 now, they are the very embodiment of using technology to change the world for good.

 

Although no candidate was identified in our area, the hands that were printed and assembled by PRHS students are going to children in Haiti where Mr. Fairley will be participating in educating local doctors this June on how to customize and print prosthetics for their patients.
