WILMER Passive Hand Prosthesis for Toddlers

Product Code: WHD-4

The WILMER Passive Hand Prosthesis is developed for children aged one through five years. This harnessless hand prosthesis aims primarily at giving the child two arms of equal length. The hand features an easy to control passive prehension function. The movements of the fingers are mechanically coupled to the movements of the thumb. By pressing an object against the finger tips, the hand opens. By slightly tilting the object, it can be grasped.

The hand prosthesis can be mounted in a passive friction wrist rotation prosthesis, available in different outer diameters.

For the age group mentioned this hand prosthesis is one of the very few available with a prehension function.
