CHANNEL 4 series ‘Shed of the Year’ has unearthed a real community hero.

Stephen Davies designs, prints, builds and fits 3D printed hands and arms for children for free.

The fantastic work is done under the name ‘Team Limbitless’, and you can find out more about the project here. 

 

Steve said the children can pick any colours or themes they like, as the pieces are designed to reflect the character and personality of the child.

Born without a left hand, Steve understands the difficulties facing the children he helps.

He describes one of the first prosthetic arms he was given as ‘something out of a medieval torture chamber.’

He said his grim early experiences with prosthetics were his inspiration ‘to make things better.’

Remarkably, the price to create one of his specially designed arms is just £20, while complex bionic limbs can cost from £60,000 to £150,000.

Steve doesn’t charge children for his services and has even shared his designs online so people all over the world can benefit.
