Baylee Abbott: 11-year-old girl 3D prints prosthetic hand

An 11-year-old girl, who has missing limbs, has created a "bionic hand" with a 3D printer.

Baylee Abbott, from Wirral, Merseyside was born with congenital limb deformities and has been wearing prosthetics since she was two years old.

Baylee's right hand has a thumb and her next three fingers are short and stop before the knuckle. Baylee's left foot is missing past the ankle and her right foot misses full toes.

She 3D printed her prosthetic hand with the help of a community of digital makers at DoES Liverpool after finding the website Enabling the Future.
