Designed and manufactured in the US, the team at Naked Prosthetics identified a lack of options for patients who had experienced digit amputation, often only having the choice of cosmetic devices with restricted functionality. So, they set out to create intuitive devices which would restore a user’s ability to perform daily tasks, and regain the confidence to get back into the workplace and lead a fulfilling life.

There are three devices available, and each has a simple, elegant design, and function by utilising the remainder of the amputee’s digit to power the device. The exoskeletal mechanics optimise range of motion and strength, whilst protecting the hypersensitive amputation site ensuring there is no contact between the residuum and the device. This works together to allow for reliable object handling and manipulation, enabling the user to carry out tasks from carrying large heavy bags, to actions requiring fine grip and dexterity such as picking up a pound coin.

The team at Naked Prosthetics were also keen to ensure these devices would be robust enough for everyday use by a variety of users – so all three are resistant to oil, water, dust, dirt, and heat resistant up to 175°C.  
PIPDriver™ - Intended for us on a finger absence at or just proximal to the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint.

MCPDriver™ - Suitable for patients with a finger absence between the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) and metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint.

ThumbDriver™ - Intended for use by those with a thumb absence between the MCP and IP joint.

Users have the choice of ten colour coatings, and the detailed prescription process involves measuring, photographing, videoing and casting the individual’s hand anatomy to ensure a positive outcome. For more information about the specific device features, please visit their product pages.
