Through Enable Web Central we found Zadie in Kansas City. Zadie’s mom was very helpful in providing sizing information, Zadie was excited to pick colors and design ideas. We contacted Kansas City Science City so they could scan Zadie’s residual arm for our test-fitting. Together with Bruce Kronberg and John Skogen we made an arm for Zadie and hand delivered it to her, meeting at the Kansas City Science City Maker Space.
Fitting Zadie’s arm was a great success. Within hours she was able to use the arm to pick of small objects. Other than a few small tweaks I knew the design was ready for release.
