Harry Flynn has lived with his assistance dog Addi since he was 9 years old. Now he's 11, Addi has proved a real help in his life, opening doors, picking up items that Harry drops. But most importantly he's a real friend for Harry and also encourages him to go outside for walks.

All Harry wants to be able to do is play with Addi by throwing a ball but due to his disability, he isn't able to. So Dr Ross Head and the team from Cerebra Innovation Centre have stepped in help inclusively design a way for Harry to launch a ball for Addi. With some 3D printing help from ATiC.
