WILMER Central Operated Hook

Product Code: WHK-8

This WILMER hook is part of a unique prosthetic system for children with a unilateral arm defect. The central pushrod operation system provides voluntary opening terminal devices with an operating power totally independent of the wrist rotation angle.
