How Did Bruce Kenneth Lose His Hand

Bruce Kenneth Prosthetic Arm
According to NJ Pen, he wanted to make a prosthetic arm which he began fabricating from cut piece of copper pipe at The Factory in Collingswood. He envisioned adding a universal, quick-release fitting to its wrist that would allow him to switch among a number of specialized woodworking attachments in the shop. He however didn’t have the technical expertise and had to stop.
The project was however revived, when Peter Brown, another woodworker met artist Kaitlyn Debiasse at another maker space. Brown was walking Debiasse through some 3-D modeling software that she wanted to use to make printable prosthetic limbs. As they talked Brown thought of Bruce as a perfect candidate.
Bruce had been looking for assistance from other makers who knew how to operate the computer-guided machining tools that could help him complete the fittings for his arm.
Brown said; “I got the idea of what he wanted to do, and then I figured out who I needed to talk to to get it done. People just started coming out and trying to help out with it.”
Christine Zapata, an industrial designer, made a leather strap for the prosthetic to attach to Faulseit’s upper arm. Matt Watson, NextFab Metals Process Manager, made the bayonet fitting for the prosthetic, which housed the universal adapter Faulseit and Brown designed with 3D modeling software.
