Charla Nash would be the first blind person with bilateral upper limb loss to be fitted with a robotic hand
We have an exciting update for you.
Charla has been working all week with a team of experts at Hanger Clinic in Cromwell who are fitting her with prosthetic hands through various trials.
WE are CLOSE to making this happen but not there yet.
The process is long and time consuming because if everything works out as planned, Charla Nash would be the first blind person with bilateral upper limb loss—to be fitted with a robotic hand. Normally, blind people are not fitted with robotic prosthetics because not being able to see which way the hand is moving can be problematic. If this works, it would be a game changer for people with similar injuries.
We are getting really close to meeting our goal but we need to raise more money to cover Charla’s costs.
Any and every donation is so appreciated. Thank-you for all your support.
