Partial Hands & Fingers

Hand and finger amputations are the most common upper limb amputation, and there are many new prosthetic solutions available to meet varying needs. From cable-operated systems to positionable fingers, there are prosthetic solutions for nearly every hand and finger amputation level.

One of the top reasons to use a partial hand prosthesis is that you are more likely to use the affected side of your body instead of hiding it in your pocket. Many people say it is easier to hold spare change, grasp irregularly shaped objects, stabilize papers, and so much more.
