Little Emma will melt your heart…

August 4th, 2012 by Marc Comments

When Techology makes life better we can all believe in it. But this case is very, very special…

Little Emma suffers from arthrogryposis multiplex congenital which makes it difficult for her to lift her arms, something that every toddler does as they explore this mad world of ours.
However Emma is a pioneer.
She is able to overcome her limits thanks to Doctor Tariq Rahman, Whitney Sample and a 3d printed Wilmington exo-skeleton. Emma is now free to play like any other child as it gives her arms the strength she needs. She is a real wee trooper and has now set the precedent that these devices can be used in everyday life and bring hope to so many.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
