mHand Adapt

How to use the mHand Adapt

  • The patented mechanism closes the hand by pushing against something (like a handlebar) or pushing something in the hand. You yourself determines the firmness of the grip.
  • The fingers of the mHand Adapt each have their own flexible 'tendon' for closing and they have an adjustable shape. So you always get an optimal grip.
  • The hand remains closed without you having to think about it.
  • You can open the hand in two steps. At the push of a button the hand is put in a pre release state. After a light closing force on the hand, it releases and opens. With these two steps, the hand never opens in an unexpected way!
  • You can adjust the position of the thumb depending on what you want to grab.
  • And last but not least: in a dangerous situation you can always quickly release the mHand Adapt from the held object due to its flexibility.

Activities with the mHand Adapt

The mHand Adapt works best for activities where two hands are used. In the video a few examples:

  • Peel a banana
  • Carry a basket
  • Make a sandwich
  • Cut a cucumber

The mHand adapt is also well suited for cycling. You can find out more here:

Why consider the mHand Adapt?

Until now, you could choose from four types of arm prostheses: interchangeable tools, cosmetic hands without function, body-enforced hands or hooks with a shoulder strap or electronic hands controlled by muscle signals.

  • The mHand Adapt combines the advantages of these prosthetics in one product:
  • The hand looks good and offers a lot of function.
  • After just a few minutes you can use your hand effectively.
  • You can feel and control how firmly you grasp an object.
  • The hand is flexible and adapts very well to all kinds of objects.
  • Without a shoulder harness, the prosthesis is easy to put on.
  • This lightest hand on the market can be worn without fatigue.
  • The hand has been tested extensively for durability and function.

Extensively tested!

The mHand Adapt is not only the lightest hand on the market, but also designed to last.

Every prosthesis we develop at Moveable, including our mHand Adapt, is extensively tested during development. For example, the hand has 100,000 times 5kg and 30,000 times a weight of 10kg 'lifted' in our test stand. The interior also had to endure a test with sand and water.

You too can test the mHand Adapt extensively. Through the link you can find all the information you need.
