A University of Victoria initiative that provides 3D-printed prosthetic hands to amputees in seven developing countries around the world will now be able to extend its reach to help people in underserved and remote communities in Canada and the US.
This initiative led by Nick Dechev, UVic professor of mechanical engineering and executive director of the Victoria Hand Project (VHP), received a $1-million award by the 2019 TD Ready Challenge. UVic was one of ten 2019 grantees announced on December 3, 2019.
Congratulations to everyone at the Victoria Hand Project!
