GIVE THESE FOLKS A HAND: Five-year-old Griffin Matuszek picks up a favorite superhero toy with his new 3-D prosthetic device as his dad, Steve Matuszek, looks on. Born with a tiny left palm and undeveloped fingers, Griffin was among about 500 attendees at a recent Johns Hopkins Medicine symposium called Prosthetists Meet Printers. Johns Hopkins trauma surgeon Albert Chi enlisted the volunteer organization e-NABLE; the Kennedy Krieger Institute; and other leaders in medicine and industry to help provide 3-D printed prosthetics to children with upper limb differences. The group at the symposium joined forces to put more durable, less constrictive and much less expensive prosthetic hands within the grasp of thousands of children.
