Open Bionics’ New 3D Printed Fingers Adopted For The First Time, Commercial Launch Coming Soon


A 3D-printed finger device has been adopted for the first time by a 50-year-old Londoner!

The Hero Gauntlet was made using Open Bionics’ 3D scanning and additive manufacturing technology. It is customised to individual user needs and enables people with congenital and acquired partial hand limb differences to regain hand functionality. Wrist flexing actions on the Hero Gauntlet can easily control finger movement.

A pool of people have been testing the 3D printed device for over a year, with the Open Bionics team assessing how certain features perform in everyday life.
