Domus

A hand adapting to growing kids

-

The name is inspired by a Chinese finger trap, but the goal is serious. Weave is a modular/adjustable hand prosthesis firmly “trapped” to the arm via a shaft. Made for specific activities (sports or playing an instrument), it’s lighter and affordable thanks to 3D printing and adapts to growing adolescent­s. The project by the Swiss designer Laurin Schaffner is being tested by the start-up SwissProst­hetics. www.swissprost­hetics.com
