3D Printed “Tact” Prosthetic Hand Takes Functionality to a New Level

The 3D printing and maker community has demonstrated over and over again just how capable it is of making the world a better place and improving the quality of life of its inhabitants in a seemingly infinite number of ways. We’ve seen the spirit of entrepreneurship combine with philanthropy in the field of prosthetic devices as 3D printers and DIYers join forces to make life much easier for people with missing limbs.

Tact: An Open-Source, Affordable, Myoelectric Prosthetic Hand

This project presents the Tact hand—an anthropomorphic, open-source, myoelectric prosthetic hand that was designed for use by people with transradial amputations in developing countries. This hand matches or exceeds the performance of other state-of-the-art myoelectric prosthetic hands, but costs two orders of magnitude less ($250) and is easy to manufacture with a 3D printer and off-the-shelf parts. We show examples of using this hand to grasp household objects.
