GRiP aims to educate not only the device recipients, but also members of the community, such as students and educators in STEM topics, such as 3D printing and modeling. Members speak and present at local schools and in seminars around Florida.
As part of our mission, GRiP delivers free, functional prosthetic and assistive devices to those with upper limb differences. These devices are personalized to the recipient's measurements as well as design preferences, such as color and style.
Research and Development
Students at the University of Florida are currently updating older device files and developing their own prosthetic device, to be released at a later date. With the technological resources at the UF combined with the creativity of students, GRiP hopes to pursue further design improvements that will directly benefit those in need.
