Description

The multidisciplinary Helping Hands capstone team partnered with OHSU to create a powered, 3D-printed, transradial prosthesis with thumb and wrist movement that is controlled by muscle activity. Existing solutions can cost more than $20,000 and are inaccessible to many patients. This device, which costs less than $500, has the potential to positively impact thousands of people currently living in the US with limb deficiencies below the elbow, as well as the growing population of individuals with limb deficiencies that is projected to double by 2050.
