Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita - or AMC - is a condition wherein multiple joints in the body are fixed, limiting one's movement. Emma Lavella, a two-year-old girl born with AMC, is now able to move her arms thanks to a 3D-printed version of the Wilmington Robotic Exoskeleton (WREX), a piece of robotics developed at the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children of Wilmington, DE. The lightweight exoskeleton was manufactured using Stratasys's Dimension 3D printer.
