This Mechanical Prosthetic Concept was designed for Bold Machines in zBrush by Jose Alves da Silva for use as a development platform for Field Ready, http://www.fieldready.org a global non profit organization specializing in disaster relief efforts.
The primary goal was to have a fully 3D printed prosthetic hand that did not require any screws, nuts/bolts or tools to assemble (as those items could be impossible to source in remote areas). We used fabric strips and elastic bands cut from shorts for the testing. The secondary goal was to make the files accessible for development/design changes by others - so it could be improved and modified for specific needs.
We invite you to download this model on Cults, test, and modify it. Share photos of your print please!
