Prosthetic arm helps boy play violin
FLORIDA – A Florida boy’s dream to play the violin comes true, thanks to Prothesis.
Third graders at U.B. Kinsey/Palmview Elementary in West Palm Beach look forward to their weekly violin class. But for 9-year-old Keith Neal, it’s a bit of a challenge hitting the right notes.
Because he was born without a fully developed left arm, his teacher holds his violin bow to help create music. Keith said, “It’s hard to play with one arm.”
But Keith will no longer need to depend on his teacher as much. Wednesday Keith received a prosthetic arm to help him perfect his playing.
