The Prosthetic Hand Program
PVNet, a technology center, located in the city of Rolling Hills Estates, California is offering free Prosthetic Hands to needy children. To be eligible for prosthetics the child needs to be between the ages of three and sixteen years and have lost fingers but still has full wrist movement. The request for a prosthetic has to be made through an adult parent, guardian or aid person.
Presently we have five wrist powered Raptor prosthetics, E-NABLE Community Foundation design, available and are in the process of manufacturing the ENABLE Cyborg Beast (picture below).
In return, we only ask for a picture of the child using the hand, a short statement about how successful the hand is to the child and you agree not to sell the prosthetic.
We only ask you to cover the cost of shipping and packaging.
