Born to Engineer - Ben Ryan
This video tells the story of Sol and Ben Ryan. Sol had to have his arm amputated after he was born. When his father Ben saw the prosthetics that were available for small children, he knew that it wasn’t good enough for his son.
Ben learned product design and engineering skills and with the support of the Bangor University Engineering Department, and has designed and built a new type of 3D printed hydraulic prosthetic for children. Now he’s started a company to make affordable custom-fitted, bespoke prosthetics for children all around the world.
