Bionic Kids Cut Ribbon on New Limbitless Solutions Lab

Four children who received 3D-printed electromyographic bionic arms from UCF’s Limbitless Solutions helped cut the ribbon at the nonprofit’s new headquarters near the CFE Arena on campus on Sept. 30. The organization started by UCF students has given out about 20 bionic arms to children born without limbs. Julianna Linton, 11, of Houston, Texas, Annika “Anni” Emmert, 12, of St. Augustine, Fla., Wyatt Falardeau, 14, of Vero Beach, and Alex Pring, 9, of Groveland, Fla. Joined the Limbitless founders, current and former volunteers, friends and university supporters for the soft opening. But the ribbon-cutting was just the first highlight of the day. The two girls and two boys also joined the March to Victory alongside UCF cheerleaders and the UCF Marching Knights band as they made their way into Spectrum Stadium for the football game against Memphis on Saturday, Sept. 30. The children then joined team captains midfield where Julianna tossed the coin to start the game.
