The Michelangelo Hand is a myoelectric controlled prosthetic hand featuring a moveable thumb that can be electronically positioned, featuring passive and active wrist rotation, a flexible oval wrist, fast and reliable data transmission, and seven hand positions.
Two drives create a natural hand movement pattern. The main drive is responsible for gripping movements and gripping force while the thumb drive allows the thumb to be electronically positioned in an additional axis of movement. For patients, it is easy to operate, and for practitioners it is easy to adjust with AxonSoft software and Bluetooth® data transfer.
The Michelangelo prosthetic hand: Intelligently simple
The Michelanglelo’s thumb, index and middle fingers are actively driven, while the ring and pinky passively follow the other fingers—and can support objects from below, such as a can.
The fingertips are made of a combination of soft and hard materials to allow real precision when grasping objects.
Michelangelo is the first thumb in the world that can be positioned electronically. While most hands have only a single drive unit to control the gripping action, the Michelangelo has a second thumb drive unit to allow you to position the thumb with myoelectric controls.
The multiaxial movement pattern minimizes unnatural compensating movements and promotes a healthy, natural body posture.
The hand returns to a natural rest position when not being actively used.
Quick change artist
Michelangelo has three position modes, offering 7 grip types—including open palm and a powerful key grip.
