With the development of 3D printing, there are attempts to create a hand prosthesis based on this technology. The key to the solutions being developed is to adapt to the needs of users through parameterization and personalization.

The combination of 3D printing, electronics, open-source solutions, creative coding and algorithmic design, based on User Centered Design methods, is clearing a path for new solutions. They allow you to provide for individual needs, such as those related to daily tasks, sports or hobbies; which can become part of, or most of the entire expression.

The exhibition presents the project myhand, aimed at developing a system of printed 3D parametric prostheses which combine the some of the features of what's available in the market today with the very unusual needs of their users. They aim to change the emotional attitude towards prostheses and stigma related to the lack of a hand, with the additional goal of being affordable.

As part of the exhibition, we will present specific problems and solutions in the field of prosthetics as well as the impact of the first stage of myhand project.
