re: body-powered hook
Human body mechanics naturally have the hand perform the voluntary closing action when reaching, grasping and holding items in everyday life activities. The ProHensor® prosthetic device is designed for intuitive use.
The ProHensor® prosthetic device automatically locks in any position. The user has full control of the locking and unlocking mechanism to give security and dependability during all activities.
The ProHensor® prosthetic device has a Replaceable Cartridge System design to allow the user to easily keep internal working mechanisms up to date at home or on the go. It's like new brake pads on your hard working car.
1912 - The Voluntary Opening device is patented. It is still the number one selling terminal device in the United States. It works with two pieces of metal and a rubber band.
2021 - The patent is issued to Marins Med for the ProHensor™ RCS for the reengineered body-powered hook to close and automatically lock in any position.
Transradial amputees take advantage of eight decades of progress in modern materials, user serviceability and design innovation. The ProHensor® - where durable meets functional.
