Artistic visions for prosthetic design VII - Red Cable Controlled Arm Experiment
What works for my "cosmetic" prostheses can be applied to my body powered prosthesis as well. Why red at all? Red works anywhere. Here we go.
If you want to check out the whole set: this is part of my Red Hand Series - nothing to buy at all, just art work in progress.
Wearing the hook on a red socket is a no brainer.
Wearing the hand, however, is more of an interesting project.
So far, so good. Silicon gloves such as the ones you see are still of the 'standard prosthetic paradigm' variety (i.e., trying to look as much like a real hand as financially possible).
Works like a charm. The glove is very affordable and has a great grip.
Here is the disassembled setup showing the MSM wrist 0.1 rev. Also you can see that I fixed the glove around the wrist using red insulation tape.
There is a functional look about it. It seems like the type of glove one could work with. Good - as Otto Bock specifically had me informed that they would not guarantee any damage to their gloves whatsoever I figured there would be better solutions around the corner.
You are saying that it looks artificial? Who'd a thunk it. Remember: "Don't waste time on the obvious".
Typing skills using Red Arm
This just gives you an impression how that darned thing looks in action.

Some people only want a temporary change of appearance. So we came up with a way to get perfect 2D sewing patterns for 3D shapes. I documented the technique in detail here. The result is definitely cool. Check it out.
