Engineering a Mean Fastball

Hailey Dawson throws a powerful fastball. Armed with her UNLV-built "Robohand," this amazing 7-year-old is set to throw the opening pitch in Game 4 of the World Series. UNLV’s College of Engineering faculty and students teamed up to design and produce a 3-D printed, robotic hand that enabled Hailey to grab, grasp, grow, and throw. Due to a rare condition called Poland Syndrome, Dawson was born without a right pectoral muscle. We're helping bring national attention to solutions for other children with Poland Syndrome.
