Thanks to 3-D printing technology and the non-profit group E-Nable, 3-year-old Rayven Kahae just received the gift of a lifetime, a new mechanical hand.

Kahae was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome (ABS), a condition that can causes reduced blood flow and restricts the normal growth of limbs while in the amniotic sac. As a result Kahae was born without his right hand.

With research Kahae’s grandmother was able to find the non-profit group E-Nable, which produced prosthetic limbs for people using new 3-D printing technology. The 3-D hand can be produced at a fraction of the cost, making it a great option for those in need.

Since receiving his new mechanical hand last week, Kahae is having no problem adjusting and his grandmother says he eager to show off  his new 3-D ‘Iron Man’ hand.
