Sol Ryan had to have his arm amputated 10 days after he was born. When his father Ben saw the prosthetics that were available for small children, he knew that it wasn't good enough for his son.

Learning product design and engineering skills and with the support of the Bangor University Engineering Department, Ben has designed and built a new type of 3D printed hydraulic prosthetic for children. Now he's started a company to make affordable custom-fitted, bespoke prosthetics for children all around the world.

Ben Ryan is a teacher in Psychology and Applied Science and a self-taught design engineer.
