Robohand

The need for affordable, functional upper limb replacements is immense. Robohand components are 3D printed using Polilactic Acid (PLA), derived from renewable resources such as corn starch, tapioca roots, chips or starch, or sugarcane. The fitment is customized to the wearer for comfort, non-toxic, water resistant and lightweight (300-700g). It is cost effective – costing between $500 – $2,000 – compared to the standard myo-electrical prosthetic device, which can cost over $10,000.
