The loss of one’s hand severely limits every daily task that we take for granted. It affects the old and the young alike, some
even from births. Artificial limbs today are not acceptable: majority of amputees we talked to claimed that they would
rather perform tasks using the remainder of their limbs whenever they can – with the resulting unnatural posture causing
chronic back pain and an overuse of the functional arm, leading to further health complications. These current hand
prostheses are of limited functionality, uncomfortable fit, bulk and weight, with complex control interfaces. X-Limb
proposes an ultra-light, functional prosthesis with an intuitive interface; designed optimally for the most utilized hand
functions by a unilateral (one-handed) amputee.
