3-D printer at SUNY New Paltz makes new hand for 6-year-old boy from Chester
A 6-year-old boy from Chester received a new prosthetic hand at SUNY New Paltz that was created by a 3-D printer.
Joseph Gilbert was born without fingers on his left hand, a rare condition that affects 1 in 10,000 children.
The 3-D printer created Joseph's new hand in one month. While prosthetic hands usually cost as much as $30,000, the one made at SUNY New Paltz cost around $20.
