We use 3D printing and other emerging technologies to build prosthetic devices for children in need. Volunteers, primarily students at NC State, use available resources and crowd-sourced donations to skillfully design and produce prosthetic devices at no cost to children or their families.
We are a student organization that designs and builds 3D printed prosthetic hands for children with limb differences. All work is pro bono as we do not charge for our services. We are not a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization but we work closely with Project Helping Hands which is. All funds for the club go towards the designing and building of prosthetics for children. The Helping Hands Project was originally started by a student at UNC Chapel Hill and eventually became a club there before spreading to a few other universities, including NC State.
