Upper Extremities Prosthetics

Cosmetic Prosthesis:

It is also called passive prosthesis because it has no function and it is just for appearance.

There is ready-made hands and custom made hands  which can now be designed to simulate the appearance of real hands, complete with freckles, veins, and hair, but it is more expensive .

Mechanical prosthesis:

These prosthesis are fitted with cables that are attached to the shoulder to the sound side and when moving your shoulder will make the mechanical hand move (open or close) or bend the elbow of the prostheses.

The function of this type of prosthesis is very simple: opening and closing the mechanical hand to pick up and carry some material, but no additional movements can be done by this type of prosthesis.
