Upper Limb Prosthetics


The e-NABLE community has developed a collection of different 3D-printable assistive devices that are free for download and fabrication by anybody who would like to learn more about the designs or fabricate a device for somebody in need.

Raptor-HandRaptor Hand

Developed collaboratively by some of e-NABLE’s top designers, the Raptor Hand is designed with ease of printing and assembly in mind. Features include 3D printed snap pins, a modular tensioning system, and compatibility with both velcro and leather palm enclosures. The Raptor Hand is licensed under the Creative Commons-Attribution-Share Alike license.

 

 


raptor reloaded

Raptor Reloaded

The team behind the original Raptor has released the Raptor Reloaded, an updated and re-factored version of the Raptor Hand. The entire device was modeled in Fusion 360, a free CAD tool that can import and export most standard solid body modeling formats such as STEP and IGES. By designing the hand in a tool compatible with numerous CAD packages, we hope to lower the barrier to contribution to the e-NABLE project for engineers and designers. The Raptor Reloaded is shared under the BSD License.

 

 


Cyborg Beast

Developed by Jorge Zuniga and his research group at Creighton University, the Cyborg Beast is one of e-NABLE’s most popular designs.  Among its features are textured finger tips for improved grip, Chicago screw joints, protected cable routing through the body of the palm, and integrated tensioning system in the gauntlet.  The Cyborg Beast is licensed under the Creative Commons-Attribution-Non-Commercial license.

 

 

 


talon2

Talon Hand 2.X

The Talon Hand is probably the most durable e-Nable hand design and boasts the greatest grip strength, but relies on a user with a greater range of motion. It is also one of the more challenging and time-consuming e-Nable device to assemble. The Talon mounts onto a leather shoe-and-cuff to make it wearable by the user. The Talon Hand is licensed under GNU GPL V3.

 

 

 

 


The Ody HandOdysseus Hand

The Ody Hand is intended for younger users, is quite durable, and works very well printed at smaller scales. The three-digit design offers lower grip resistance than five-fingered devices, so it requires less strength to operate. Its shoe-and-cuff construction process is very similar to that of the Talon Hand. The Ody Hand is licensed under GNU GPL V3.

 

 

 


 

Flexy Hand 2

Flexy Hand and Flexy Hand 2

The Flexy Hand 2, designed by Steve Wood, is a wearable prosthetic device made using flexible hinges. Using flexible filament for the hinges means that no elastic cords are necessary to return the fingers to their outstretched position. The Flexy Hand 2 is shared under the Attribution – Non-Commercial – Share Alike license.

 

 

 


The Owen Replacement FingerOwen Partial Finger Replacement 

Developed by Ivan Owen,the co-creator of the original Robohand, this partial replacement finger is a parametric finger that can be customized to a user’s individual measurements using the Thingiverse Customizer web-app.  This has been released to the public domain via the Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication license.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Additional Gauntlet Options

The e-NABLE community has designed, customized, and shared numerous variations of the gauntlet for different users’ needs and requests.  See here for some of the available options!

 

 

 

 

 


Limbitless_2-032_preview_featured

Limbitless Arm

Developed by the UCF Armory (University of Central Florida), led by Albert Manero, the Limbitless Arm is e-NABLE’s first myoelectric design. The Limbitless Arm is licensed under the Creative Commons-Attribution-Non-Commercial license.

RIT Arm

The RIT Arm is an adaptive device people an arm with an elbow but no wrist. It can be actuated by bending the residual elbow or via a bowden cable connected to a shoulder harness. The arm was originally developed by e-NABLE members at Rochester Institute of Technology.
