According to the British "Daily Mail" reported on January 2, the 51-year-old Kalem Miller lives in Stockton-on-Tees, England, and he uses 3D technology to defect the left arm for his 10-year-old son made nine bionic arms.

It is reported that Miller has a son and a daughter, and his son Jamie is born without a left arm. He did not find any problems during his mother's pregnancy test. When Jamie was 6 years old, the doctor said that he could perform surgery to treat Jamie's toe as a finger, but Miller refused. He said that although Jamie has no left arm, this has never prevented him from continuing to live. They will teach him how to Do things with one hand.

 

In 2017, Miller bought a 3D printer and downloaded the design on the Internet to make a 3D arm for Jamie. The first time he made the arm was very successful, the 3D arm reaches down from the elbow and flexes the elbow to move the fingers.Jamie, who was wearing a prosthetic for the first time, was very excited and took it to school, which shocked his classmates and teachers.


So far, Miller has produced 9 printed arms for Jamie, and one with flashing LED lights, which is what Jamie has come up with. Miller now upgrades it by installing an electronic sensor on the arm.
