New Arm For Christmas: 5-year-old Opens Presents With Limb Made From 3D Printer

Charlie Egan was born with no right arm below the elbow but has now been fitted with his new 'Spider-Man' prosthetic arm printed from a 3D machine. Charlie is thought to be the first child in the UK to be fitted with an arm made with the revolutionary printing technology. It was specially designed for him in red and blue, the colours of his favourite superhero Spider-Man, has a Spider-Man web motif and arrived just in time for the start of the Christmas festivities. His mother Penny Egan from Lowestoft, Suffolk, husband David, 32, an engineer sought help from US-based E-nable, a network of volunteers who design and make prosthetics mainly for children.
