Born without a hand, preschooler gets a Robohand for Christmas from high school robotics team

The robotics team from West Catholic High School gave a 4-year-old Cedar Trails Elementary student the right hand she never had on Thursday, Dec. 19.

"I'm going to paint them (nails) pink," said Harmony Taylor with a big smile as she pulled on each finger of her customized Robohand and strolled around the school media center, getting a feel for the device and using it.

Using it, she easily picked up the gift bag from the West Catholic students who made the device. It included a bottle of pink nail polish.

"I am so excited because this is going to make her more independent," said her mother, Melanie Peterman, who said Harmony was born with a condition called limb differences that resulted in her not having any fingers on her right hand.
