After all that we had discussed in June 2008 – cable ball connector, spring settings and their modifications, the new Otto Bock MovoHook that I got a bit later, and Brad who asked for photos of the MovoHook – it seems that Bradley Veatch released a new hook through PhysioNetics through ADA Technologies.
This interesting product termed V2P prehensor seems to feature near car-lifting strength spring setting, and looks like the Hummer of All Hooks or even a weapon. I like its appearance but the ultimate interest is in its function. The V2P also features non-linear spring settings.
I now use a pimped version of the Otto Bock MovoHook and a new wrist joint that we built ourselves (currently MSM wrist 0.1-rev, details freely available for download if you want to build one as well), and that covers all aspects of my daily situations with some rare exceptions that are probably inherent to hand prosthetics rather than a specific solution. Most notably, the MovoHook contains two sufficiently useful spring settings, looks like a conventional hook, features a rather optimized and refined hook claw shape and is quite lightweight.
