Intact Finger / Disability aid

Intact Finger
Intact Finger



Intact Finger gives manually disabled people with a completely new flexibility option, allowing the defective finger to move flexibly alongside the others. Intact Finger is equipped with an induction chip, which senses skin and skeleton changes in the normal fingers to control the movement path of the defective finger, transmitting data from glove to finger through motion sensors. Mass production promises to reduce costs and open up new user groups.

This design creates a positive experience for people who have lost one or more fingers. The need for manual dexterity is a key issue for such people. This design concept uses an ergonomic adjustable structure and smart technology to largely solve this problem.
Jury Statement
Thanks to the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD for recognizing our work. In the course of this project, my teammates and I have gained a deeper understanding of design. We are also grateful for our teacher ’s careful guidance and correction. We will continue to work hard to develop real problem-solving design.
