Robohand creates low-cost, functional prosthetic devices for people missing fingers, hands and arms.
Many people in Australia lose limbs in accidents and through disease, but there is also a high number of children born with missing limbs, from conditions like amniotic band syndrome and Symbrachydactyly.
Traditional prosthetic hands are heavy, have limited function and cost in the tens of thousands. This makes it unaffordable for most families. Children outgrow a prosthesis in 6 to 8 months. Robohands can be easily updated to larger sizes for growing children using the same hardware at a minimal cost.
