Bionic Hand

Team Bionic Solutions: Adam West, Ray Hannish, Matt Jones

This group worked on a device for a client who has a paralyzed right arm.  The client cannot use the right arm from wrist through to his fingers.  In his job he can use his left arm to perform tasks such as data entry, sorting etc.  But while he does these kind of tasks he needs to hold onto things such as sheets of paper, mail etc., in his right hand.  The device works as an attachment to a glove that can be worn by the client on his right arm.   The device has a pair of sheet metal jaws that work like a paperclip to hold onto any object that is placed between them.  The client can use this to hold things with his right hand while he is working with his left.
