3D Printed Prosthetic - The Victoria Hand

Recommended Posts

Posted · 3D Printed Prosthetic - The Victoria Hand

Hey Everyone,

Just thought I would take some time to share with you a newly designed 3d Printed prosthetic that our University has been working on. The prosthetic is called Victoria, after where it is being developed. The prosthetic will eventually be released as an open source hand available for people to modify as they see fit.

Its still being developed, but we feel we have it in a state for now where we can start demonstrating it and seeing what people think.

Hope you like it!

Looks quite nice, especially the arm / socket part!

How can the user "use" the hand? (flex, bend, grab...)

Great project! I keep telling myself I should get involved in a humanitarian type project but the boring worky type stuff must come first :(

The hand is purely mechanical, It is used with a shoulder harness which is pretty standard for body actuated prosthetics.

No we are not, however its been really neat to see the terrific job you guys have been doing. Helping people is the name of the game and we hope that we will be able to participate in some form or another.
