GRiP Hand Camp Device

The University of Florida GRiP club will be offering 3-D printed adaptive devices and prosthetics to campers again at this year’s hand camp. Please follow the link provided at the end of the application if you would like to explore this resource for your child with an upper limb difference. If your child/teenager is interested in receiving a prosthetic hand or task specific device from GRiP, please click on this link and fill out this survey. 


  • In order for GRiP to make each child’s/teenager’s device on time, their forms must be completely filled out by January 28th, 2018. Any device requests made beyond this date cannot be guaranteed for Hand Camp, but can be fulfilled at a later date.
  • If your child is under the age of 4, GRiP is unable to make a device for him or her. When a child is under the age of 4, his/her bones are still growing and he/she may not be able to communicate problems or discomfort associated with the device.
