A Prosthetic Hand for the Developing World

For their 2014 Mountaintop project, Lehigh students Arielle Weiner ’16, Danielle Taitt ’16 and Zakaria Hsain ’17 are working to develop a simple, low-cost and aesthetically pleasing hand prosthetic that could be used by residents of developing nations.

Rather than relying on electronics, the team aims to create a prosthetic that will use the movement of the body to help the wearer accomplish, for example, agricultural work.

In mid-July, the team shared an update on their progress with Lehigh videographer Stephanie Veto.
