Unique / 30 € Arm prosthesis

Unique
Unique

“Unique” mostly consists of materials like wood, leather and textiles. With the help of a building plan and patterns the prosthesis can be produced locally, only the plastic joint is produced in Germany. The arm and the hand can be locked in 6 different positions and the compatible gloves are adjusted to the variable life situations (festiveglove, workingglove, leraningglove for children).
The user can design “Unique” by his own wishes. Because of this, the prosthesis will be unique and nobody else will have the same prosthesis.
