The field of prosthetics has been transformed by the introduction of 3D printing technology, which provides various benefits to prosthetic users. Furthermore, 3D printing ensures high-quality and consistent production of prosthetic hands made through 3D printing that are durable yet lightweight; making them comfortable for users to wear for extended periods. Additionally, customization options are extensive, allowing users to personalize their prosthetic hands to meet their aesthetic and functional needs. One such innovation is Zeus, the strongest bionic hand on the market, which offers a grip force of 34.17lbf/152N and lift capacity of 77lbs/35kgs. It is also extremely robust, with impact-resistant fingers that can withstand heavy use. Even in the unlikely event of a breakage, Zeus can be repaired locally in under 60 minutes, ensuring minimal downtime for the user. For clinicians, Zeus represents a game-changing innovation in the world of prosthetics. With its locally repairable design, customizable 12 grip patterns, and digital platform, Zeus offers a level of versatility and flexibility that was previously unheard of in the industry. The ability to remotely configure the hand ensures that clinicians can provide their patients with the best possible solution without the need for time-consuming in-person adjustments.
