Tilly lost both her hands from meningitis B when she was 15 months old.

Open Bionics have worked with 20th Century Fox and the Alita team to build bespoke 3d printed Hero Arms for Tilly, inspired by Alita: Battle Angel – a futuristic action film where cyborgs are given bionic limbs.

Disability Rights UK, the University of Salford, and the University of Dundee worked together to explore the possibilities of digital fabrication/3d printing via our In the Making project. This sought to involve disabled people in developing commercial, social and creative benefits from new digital fabrication technology.
