What I'm wondering, Beth, is whether the device is external support for her arms or whether it is a joint replacement/support that has been inserted within her arms.

I imagine as a younger patient grows, the design could also be quickly scaled up little by little and printed again (to help save prosthetics fitting time too).

@kellerbl: It sounds like there will be some great opportunities for your grandson and isn't he lucky to have a granddad that is so up on the technology to pose some suggestions. The team that developed the WREX is Dr. Tariq Rahman and designer Whitney Sample--both from the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilimington, Del. (Don't know where your grandson is)

Here's a link to Dr. Rahman's information.
