Tech bits I - bolt and cable specs for Otto Bock compatible wrist units

Specifications for Otto Bock compatible / MSM 0.1rev wrists:

1. Screw

The terminal devices should have a 12 x 1.5 mm thread (Gewinde).

2. Bolt

The bolt that we'd fit over the screw is to make it compatible with current follow-on adapters that we use. It's a regular Otto Bock bolt with sub 16.00 mm diameter, such as 15.99 mm or thereabouts.

3. Crown / cylinder adapter

For our own wrist series, we use fitting adapters that fix to the Otto Bock 16 mm diameter specification regardless of the degree of sloppy manufacturing (after all one of my bolts is only 15.88 mm and we also beat that one into wigglefree submission).

4. Cable connection

There should be a steel cable. We then clamp on the little metal piece that provides the interface to the cable lock.

Length from wrist backwards: optimally the cable should be at least 8 cm long.

Diameter: it should have a 1 mm diameter.

One day all devices will be compatible.
