CFAB RESOURCES: Naked Prosthetics
August 02, 2018
Naked Prosthetics designs and fabricates high-quality prosthetic devices specifically for finger loss. Our mission is to assist people with digit amputation(s) and positively impact their lives with fully articulating, custom finger prostheses. Our product aims to restore the ability to perform most tasks, supporting job retention and an active lifestyle. Our customers have lost fingers to power tools, equipment malfunctions, injury in the line of military service, random accidents, and infections; in some cases, multiple digits have been lost. Historically, finger prostheses have been considered a second tier of prosthetics due to the lack of meaningful functionality. NP now provides a viable functional prosthesis versus a passive cosmetic solution. Our prostheses are intentionally left uncovered because we believe innovative technology should be displayed with pride. NP has three biomechanical products designed to replace partial loss of the thumb and fingers. Our design mimics finger motion and utilizes the remainder of an amputee's digit to power the device. Each device is custom designed to within millimeters of a patient's unique hand structure to provide the dexterity and small size required to successfully mimic the function of a finger. In most cases, our device restores the function of an amputee's hand and allows individuals to resume all normal activities related to work and play. Any combination of our devices can be worn at once.
