Upper Limb Prosthetics - Body-Driven
The MCPDriver is a mechanical finger driven by the user’s residual digit strength and motion, to mimic anatomical gestures of the middle and distal phalanges. Custom-fabricated to within millimetres of the individual’s residual fingers, the device follows the natural movement of the finger to regain fine dexterity.
This body-driven device is suitable for patients with a finger absence between the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) and metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint. The MCPDriver is constructed using rigid stainless steel linkages which are anchored onto a comfortable backplate system, to allow for the residuum to carry out natural grip patterns whilst maintaining optimal strength.
