David (19) was born without a forearm, and then builds but their own prosthetics... out of Lego
The 19-year-old David Aguilar from Andorra is from his childhood love of Lego. Not only to castles and spaceships to build, but also to his own prosthetic arm to throw. In ten years time, he has designed four models, each prosthesis is still slightly better than the previous. “Lego helped me to my childhood dream to realize: two hands,” he explains.

David was born with an underdeveloped right arm, the result of a rare genetic disorder. Nevertheless, he grew up as a completely normal boy with a passion for Lego. And that passion showed him later in good stead. the

As a child, he used the bouwsteentjes after all, for their own ‘inventions’, such as a cap with built-in fan. When he was 9 years old was he built something that he is still much further would bring: his own kunstarm. He took the Lego-building kit for a small boat and herorganiseerde the stones to a prosthesis around the arm fit. the

It was a simple construction with a strap around his neck at his place was held, but for David it was a personal victory. “As a child I was very nervous to be with other boys because I was different”, it sounds. “I wanted to give myself in the mirror as I other boys saw with two hands.”
