The loss of a limb is a life-changing event and reality for 441,000 transradial amputees in the United States. Limb loss can have substantial physical, social, psychological, and economic consequences. A prototype prosthesis was created that has sophisticated hand functionality, an adjustable and comfortable socket, and a lightweight yet durable design utilizing 3D printing, all available at a reasonable price point. The prosthesis integrated force sensors, servo motors, and a myoelectric means of control so the user may perform activities of daily living. The overall outcome was a prosthesis that met its design requirements, offering increased usability, functionality, and availability.
