Limbitless Solutions president and co-founder Albert Manero, PhD, was recently honored for the organization’s work delivering 3D-printed bionic arms to children around the United States at no cost to their families. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and First Lady Casey DeSantis hosted the first annual Florida Heroes reception to recognize people for exhibiting courage, perseverance, and self-sacrifice, and those who have dedicated themselves to helping others overcome adversity.
Founded in 2014, Limbitless Solutions is a nonprofit and direct support organization at the University of Central Florida dedicated to increasing accessibility and empowering children and adults in the limb-difference community.
“We were honored to be recognized at the event and to represent our program and the university,” Manero said. “We were surrounded by an incredible group of heroes, and it was an honor to hear how they are making our communities stronger.”
Manero attended the event with Limbitless Solutions co-founder John Sparkman, vice president and head of research and development of technology.
