A story that surprises the world
Born with “Poland syndrome,” has never been an excuse for David Aguilar. The lack of development of his right arm far from becoming an impediment to his life, he became an opportunity of self-improvement and inspiration for many.
Since childhood he always liked crafts and one thing that fascinated him was to build things with legos. At the age of nine he thought of making a hand with his favorite toy. And he got it! As of that moment a new stage in its life began.
Last December, while in his room looking at his pieces of Lego, he predisposed himself to build a ship, but his destiny is sometimes whimsical and as he progressed he realized that the shape of a glove was emerging . So he decided to take the inspiration of the moment and thought to build a Lego prosthesis, but this time, he wanted to take it to another level.
In mind, David had the one he built when he was only a child, but this time he wanted to arm an arm and a hand that would give him mobility, flexibility and firmness. In other words, I wanted to build something functional that came as close as possible to reality.
“Since that day I have evolved the prostheses I’ve designed. I’m going through the third one. The first two were well-earned, but as I used them, I saw what could be improved. Let’s say the one I have is currently 3.0 It is the most complete I have built and with which I can work more precisely, “said David.
