Kaylene Kau's Prosthetic Arm

The functional design is much simpler than the traditional "five fingers" model, which could make it easier to operate for amputees who have also lost a lot of muscle in their arms.  I hope this catches on!

Kaylene Kau, she writes:"
For this project we were pushed by our Professor to push the boundaries of current upper-limb prosthetic design. Through extensive research I found that the prosthetic functioned as an assistant to the dominant functioning hand. The prosthetic needed to be both flexible and adjustable in order to accommodate a variety of different grips."
