This toddler and her tiny exoskeleton will melt your heart

Meet Emma. She's two years old and suffers from arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, a rare disorder that makes moving her arms extremely difficult. But with the aid of Dr. Tariq Rahman, Whitney Sample, and her custom-fit, 3D-printed Wilmington Robotic Exoskeleton, Emma now has the strength to lift her arms and play like any toddler. It's so darn adorable and inspiring that the room you're sitting in may suddenly become filled with eye-seeking dust particles.
