3-Year-Old Boy Missing a Hand Gets Real Superhero Part
A disability that once made 3-year-old Rayven "Bubba" Kahae feel different than other children now makes him feel like Iron Man. The Hawaiian child suffers from Amniotic Band Syndrome, a rare birth defect in which tissue strands in a mother's womb wrap around and amputate a fetus's limbs. But the nonprofit group E-nabling the Future gave the boy a 3D-printed hand that resembles Iron Man's.
Rayven's grandmother, Rulan Waikiki told KHON 2 News, "As soon as he put it on and was able to close the hand, his face just lit up."
E-Nable makes these hands with a 3D printer for only , significantly cheaper than other prosthetic hands that can cost up to ,000. Even better, the nonprofit was able to provide the hand at no cost to the Kahae family, as they do with all of their patients, because of donations and volunteer work.
As Rayven grows, he will be resized for new hands. Waikiki hopes that other children and adults will benefit from this technology saying, "Once they get this hand, their self-confidence is going to go through the roof."
Watch the video below to see the Rayven's amazing reaction to his new hand.
