Discipline: Professional Concept

Myoelectric hand is a prosthetic hand that users can control intuitively using muscle signals measured on the amputated end. handiii is a myoelectric hand that reduces the price dramatically and provides variation in design. Conventional prosthesis has been developed to conceal and bridge the gap between disabled and ordinary. However, we believe that prosthesis should be an interface for amputees to express their personality and show something that normal persons cannot do.

This artificial hand is not your typical product within this sector. Its unique design makes it appear pleasant and forward-looking and offers the user an unusually high degree of personalization – something rare in this field. Furthermore, the innovative functions of the prosthesis contribute to giving the carrier the utmost support.
