“Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board’s research and development department supports the work being carried out at Ambionics, which has the potential to revolutionise the care of infants with upper limb differences.”
– Dr Nefyn Williams, Director of Innovation, BCUHB, NHS Wales
“It’s been inspiring to work on this innovative and ambitious project. It is amazing that, despite Ben having no background in product design, he’s taught himself enough to create something that will not only help his own son Sol, but potentially lots of others facing the same challenges too.”
– Paul Sohi, Product Designer, Autodesk
“3D printing has been around for many years for rapid prototyping and is only recently creating waves in manufacturing across many key industrial sectors in the U.K. The potential for 3D printing in advancing healthcare technology is significant. The proposition and creative genius of Ambionics in using 3D printing and new materials to the benefit of prosthetics has the potential to revolutionise the lives of thousands of children (and adults) in the U.K. alone. I believe this product is a true game changer that creates a significant step change in the field of prosthetics.”
– Dr Louise Jones, 3D printing/Additive manufacturing lead, Knowledge Transfer Network
“This case is indicative of 3D printing’s ability to improve lives by overcoming the traditional barriers of low-volume manufacturing, We continue to support and enable innovators like Ben to bring customization to mainstream prosthetics manufacture”
