Weave is a prosthetic hand for children and teenagers who are still growing. Thanks to 3D printing and its modular system, Weave users are provided with various hands for specific activities. A key feature is an adjustable mechanism in the socket that uses the principle of weaving to ensure a reliable attachment to different stumps. Weave was developed in collaboration with the startup-firm SwissProsthetics through a process of intensive user testing.
