A six-year-old boy from Isère has become the first person in France to receive an ultra-low-cost prosthetic limb.

Costing less than 50 euros to produce, Maxence’s new hand was possible thanks to a US-based group, which promoted its 3D technology publically, allowing anyone to print their own device.

Worldwide, more than 1,500 plastic limbs have been produced since 2013.
