The Helping Hand: Daniel’s custom-made, prosthetic arm

The Helping Hand is a story about Daniel, who is super into dinosaurs, how things are made, and just running around goofing off. Siemens.com is currently showcasing Daniel’s story, by filmmakers Z. Murphy & L. Kranen, about how he also got a custom-made, prosthetic arm to help him do other things like swing a bat and ride a bike. 

State-of-the-art computer-aided design (CAD) and engineering (CAE) software, and the awesome biomedical engineers behind those tools, helped to design and build Daniel’s arm!
