Finger and Partial Hand Options
Electric finger solutions for those with finger amputations consist of individually-powered prosthetic fingers that can bend, touch, pick up and point. Electric finger solutions are custom built to match a person’s sound side or to match any remaining fingers. Advanced Arm Dynamics has played a key role in the research, development and beta testing of electric fingers. Thumb solutions can be built using either powered or non-powered options.Body-powered finger solutions may be created with multiple fingers, a single finger or a partial finger. Passive cosmetic finger solutions may include multiple fingers, partial fingers and finger tips that fit over the remaining portion of a person's finger to restore the natural appearance of the hand. Multipositional finger joints are sometimes included in these devices to provide some functional grasp and pre-positioning in the fingers. Using the sound hand, the joints can be moved into position to allow for holding a can or bottle, or gripping a handle. For partial hand amputees who have their natural thumb, the prosthesis is designed to provide opposition to the thumb, thereby enhancing the person’s ability to grasp and release.
