Brandy Leigh Scott, inspiration for the Within Reach contest

Brandy Leigh Scott, 41, was diagnosed with an aggressive case of Dupuytren’s contracture, a rare disease that thickens the tissue of the palm, causing the fingers to fold into the hand and stiffen, limiting their use. Her condition was the inspiration for Within Reach, a global contest that challenges adults and youth to create devices with 3-D printers that will help people with limited use of their hands.
