User feedback from hand prothesis users is that they want their hand prosthesis smaller and lighter. A need is therefore to provide affordable advanced motion hand prosthesis for sizes, for children and adults, as light as possible. A startup company in Norway is addressing this need by introducing a new class of hand prosthesis based on microhydraulics, 3D print and advanced materials.
