Designed for use with cosmetic gloves, these robust, cable-operated mechanical hands will withstand common daily use. An active thumb and active first and second fingers provide three-point gripping. The third and fourth fingers are independently sprung to work with the first two fingers. The hand spring is adjustable, allowing a stronger or weaker grip as desired. When the operating cord is released, a positive lock automatically engages so that the user can confidently carry items.
These Voluntary Open mechanical hands are designed for control with either a palmar (medial) or a dorsal (lateral) pull cord, ensuring that they can be fitted to most prosthetic systems. A limited supply of the smaller children’s Voluntary Close (VC) Mechanical hands (2” & 2¼”) are available – call LTI for availability. Order appropriate wrist from WRIST section.
Children’s Mechanical Hand sizes range from 2” to 2¼”, which designates the width across the knuckles including the cosmetic glove. When ordering gloves, specify the desired color as well as the size and side.
Adult sizes start at 2½” – see Mechanical Hands for Adults.
