Most voluntary closing devices including this design need sufficient wrist movement and strength for proper function. This design doesn't require Orthoplastic. The fingers are designed for better gripping and to avoid over extension of the proximal phalange and distal finger segment. It fits a 1 to 2 mm cabling and elastic bands.

Assembly instructions can be found on the website

Printing Instructions:

Infill: Depends on age. We usually do 30% infill.

Number of Shells? 2

Temp? Depends on Plastic recommendations. But 230 c is safe estimate for all types.

Speed? For better quality, lower your speed to 60mm/sec extrusion and 90mm/sec for traveling

Orientation: The same as the objects load onto the build plate. We designed the STL files for ease of use so you do not need to change much.

Jeremy Simon made a very instructive and educational videos for the assembling and testing of the Cyborg Beast. Thank you to Jeremy Simon and

Here is a demonstration of the functionality of the Cyborg Beast from one of our research participants named Tucker. Thank you Tara for posting the Video.
