Modular Socket / prothesis

Modular Socket
Modular Socket

The modular Socket- system is designed to fit the personal needs of users. By separating the manufactured parts, the prosthesis becomes more individual, while dramatically cutting down the production costs.
Open Ports to connect the liner, socket and prosthetic hand allow an easy swapping of parts and an open development of more focused prosthesis by every designer and engineer. In addition, the integration of battery and cpu (SoC) into the unused space of the socket make whole new formfactors of prostehtic hands possible.
