They can upgrade their prosthetic device with the additional module such as a smart-watch, flashlight, skipping rope, drone’s remote control etc.
Principle of work
Body-powered prostheses apply drawbars which connects moving elements of an arm and the motionless capsule. In existing mechanical prosthetic the force transmitted to the drawbar is generated by the movement of the opposite shoulder.
In our tractional prosthesis of fingers the strain is produced by bending the wrist or the elbow joint.
