Delivering a device to Fadi

Delivering a device to Fadi 1920 3120 Enabling Website e-Νable Greece

Fadi was injured during the war in Syria and lost his right arm cause of a bomb attack. Fadi’s case was a difficult one since there was not enough arm part and bone left to create a fully functional hand for him. We reached out to the community and the news was not as encouraging as we hoped for. We communicated with Fadi and informed him about the situation and the possibility of a failure. He insisted on trying so we did deliver to him a kwawu Socket Hand in skin tone. The hand cannot fully function since Fadi does not have enough arm to support the device but it offers some kind of functionality and serves to aesthetic reasons. Our next goal is to incorporate muscle sensors and turn this hand into an electronic one. The device’s maker is Julie Tsoni and she delivered the device to the recipient on Friday 07/12/2018.
