LaChappelle “developed the world’s lightest weight and most affordable bionic limb,” according to the synopsis. “His inspiration came from a robotic arm he built as a 14-year-old teen that won a state science fair. Using 3D printing technology, LaChappelle builds custom prostheses that are a perfect mirror image of the wearer’s opposing limb, with skin color matching, a sense of touch, and intuitive control — at one-tenth of the cost of other mass-produced prostheses.
“LaChappelle’s innovation, called TrueLimb, works especially well for growing children with limb differences, which is highlighted in the film by 14-year-old Aashna Patel. We follow Patel as she receives her TrueLimb and discovers her new capabilities, such as playing catch for the first time with her father. This powerful story shines a bright light on the potential of 3D printing, the future of prosthetics, and the brilliant young inventor and entrepreneur who is using technology to make the world a better place.”

Generation Impact: The Inventor is directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Sarah Klein (History of Memory, Cancer: The Emperor of Maladies, Dear Future Me) and produced by Redglass Pictures.
