Suyo / Prosthesis


Suyo is a 3D printed prosthesis for upper-limb amputees. Due to the combination of additive manufacturing and design almost all parts of the prosthesis are produced by a consumer 3D-Printer.
The only parts necessary to buy are the Velcro as well as the nylon cords, which controls the closing and opening of the fingers by flexing the elbows.

Those parts have been designed with average built area of consumer 3D printers in mind.
