Using Technology to Help the Tiniest and Furriest Patient
Luna on the move in her new wheels
March 28, 2017 -- Digital Media Arts junior, Jessceya Bonds, had a unique problem, but thought she might be able to find a solution at her school. Her pet guinea pig, Luna, recently had an accident, broke its leg and is now unable to walk on her own. Jessceya wondered if there might be some students in other JVS programs who could help her out.
That is where Mr. Scanlan, 9th and 10th grade lab instructor, came in to help. He and his students were willing and able to use their 3-D printer to make Luna a wheelchair! Luna was measured for her custom chair, it was designed and then printed in the Career Readiness lab, and the results are working great.
Luna is now able to get around on her own. Jessceya is thrilled with the results and grateful for the help and support she and Luna received from the students and staff at the JVS.
