Project Overview

The goal of this project is to design and manufacture a mechanical prosthetic finger to fit inside a realistic silicone covering. The final prototype should be an individualized finger prosthesis that is affordable, aesthetically and mechanically functional. Ideally it will restore flexion and extension movement of an amputated residual finger, while still being able to fit inside a realistic silicone sleeve. The client desires that the prototype be 3D-printable.
