Amputee kids will get superheroes hands Modern prostheses for people with an amputated arm are in most cases made with a bias to perform the maximum number of actions, especially related to fine motor skills. But such high-tech products have one significant minus – they are extremely expensive, and not everyone can buy them. Things are even more complicated with small patients. Firstly, the child’s body grows quite quickly and therefore requires frequent replacement of the prosthesis, and, as we wrote above, this is not a cheap device. Secondly, the guys who have lost a hand often experience an inferiority complex and simply refuse to wear dentures. Open Bionics, a 3D printer manufacturer, has decided to print children’s prostheses inspired by superheroes from comics and fairy tales. Their products have a minimal set of functions and capabilities, but they are quite accessible to most patients and, moreover, they are lightweight. The manufacturer has already introduced three models of prostheses: the arm of the Jedi from the Star Wars saga, the arm of Tony Stark from the movie Iron Man and the arm of Elsa from the cartoon Frozen. As the authors of the project found out, prosthetic carriers are more concerned about the weight and appearance of the product than their functionality, and their product fully meets these requirements. Dentures go on sale next year at a price not exceeding $ 500. Дети с ампутированными конечностями получат руки супергероев (3 фото + видео) Amputee kids will get superheroes hands
