(KLTV) A LeTourneau University Student is making a 5-year-old Florida girl’s dream come true by helping her learn the violin. He’s not helping her with lessons; he has actually made it possible for her to hold the bow.
The little girl has no left hand, so a biomedical engineering student has made a device for her that will hold a violin bow.
Believe it or not if you take a spool of plastic, melt and rearrange it with a 3D printer, you can come up with an assistive device that specifically suits one need for those missing an appendage, or at least Biomedical Engineering student Derew Miles did.

An email from a Florida violin instructor asked if LeTourneau students could design and:
“3D print a device that allows Neriah Rhodes to play the violin,” Miles said.
