Disney – R2-D2 Star Wars Prosthetic Arm Covers

11-year-old double amputee Bella Tadlock, from Tallahassee, Florida, is a huge Star Wars fan and asked for an R2-D2 Star Wars prosthetic arm. We knew a fan of Bella’s from a galaxy far, far away… and surprised Bella with a Skype call from the one and only Mark Hamill. Luke Skywalker, y’all!

Disney Frozen Hero Arm Covers

11-year-old Evie Lambert from Huddersfield, was born missing her left arm. She’s struggled with basic skin-like gripper arms offered by the NHS, and has asked Santa for a bionic arm. She recently received a Hero Arm with official Disney Frozen covers. Evie said: “It’s really, really cool to have my bionic arm. I can now pick up a cup and brush my hair with my left hand, which I’ve never been able to do before.” Evie’s Hero Arm was funded by an external anonymous donor.

Marvel Iron Man Hero Arm Covers

12-year-old Raimi from Street was born without an arm as a result of amniotic band syndrome. She loves Iron Man and was blown away by her new Iron Man covers for the Hero Arm. Raimi said: “When I first saw my Iron Man covers, I felt amazed. They are very unique and they’re so cool. Before getting my Hero Arm, many people just stared at me in public. But now that I have it, it gives me more confidence.” Open Bionics gifted Raimi with a Hero Arm as a thank you for taking part in the first stage of the NHS trial.

Turning fiction into reality

We’re really grateful to Disney, Lucasfilm and Marvel for allowing us to find inspiration from their incredible characters and stories; this has helped us to empower children and adults with limb differences. The Hero Arm Disney covers are easy to take on and off, allowing children to accessorise their bionic arm to match their mood. They can wear their Star Wars BB-8 Covers at school, for example, and then change into their personalised blue Spectrum Covers in the evening. The covers showcase that your uniqueness is your superpower and you shouldn’t feel like you have to hide your limb-difference – instead you can show it off.
