Armprothese

To start out, the various technologies used in existing 3D-printed arm prostheses were compared. In this phase of the project, a lively exchange of ideas via social media with prosthesis developers in Spain and the USA was of great importance.

After exchanging information with Limbitless Solutions, a non-profit organization that produces electrical prostheses for children, the construction of the prosthesis could begin.

Dominik Ballwein and Samuel Lehner employed joints and sophisticated drive technology to replicate as well as possible the basic motions of a healthy arm.
