Hands to Love – Hand Camp 2024

25th April 2024

Earlier this month, our Orlando prosthetic clinician Emily had the opportunity to experience Hand Camp, a celebration of children with upper limb difference hosted by Hands to Love charity. This year Hand Camp hosted over 70 families from across the country, creating a positive and supportive environment for kids of all ages and their family members. We were excited to participate by showcasing how our 3D printed technology worked and hosting a coloring competition where campers could design their own bionic arm with superpowers.

Some of the highlights of Hand Camp for Emily from the weekend included reconnecting with familiar faces, enjoying crisp spring mornings, meeting new families, making s’mores around the campfire, and spreading the word about what we do! It was a unique opportunity to appreciate that limb difference comes in all shapes and sizes, and having a supportive community is a critical part of helping children adapt and thrive. The theme of camp this year was “This is My Story” and campers were encouraged to reflect and take pride in what makes them unique.

At Open Bionics we aim to be a resource for children with upper limb difference and their families. If you would like to meet Emily in Orlando to demo the Hero Arm or just have questions you’d like to ask her about prosthetics for children, please register and we’ll be in touch.
