Artistic visions for prosthetic design V - Red Arm I
This is part of my Red Hand Series.
This prosthetic arm is now very clearly recognizable as a replacement part that does not attempt to camouflage but to replace a shape. And I am all for anthropomorphic shapes - don't get me wrong. Just because I really like my sturdy and reliable hook function does not mean I want to look that way. I want to look as complete as possible, and while that is not possible it appears as if I am currently negotiating a compromise.
So currently we put good old Steiner's Rudy and his ideas about nervous people to use after establishing that nervousness is a real issue. Who'd a thunk it, there is a logical thread, a theory and a strategy.
So, here we go, obviously that right arm is different but not hard to figure out for others.
I definitely use this for typing and in fact, it is by far the best tool for typing I had so far. The cable controlled arm works very well for typing - the hook tips, or holding a pen with the voluntary opening hand are both useful ways to type. But this piece of "cosmetic arm" is very light, very precise in positioning the fingers and very comfortable.
