Key Features

The MCPDriver is a mechanical finger driven by the user’s residual digit strength and motion, to mimic anatomical gestures of the middle and distal phalanges. Custom-fabricated to within millimetres of the individual’s residual fingers, the device follows the natural movement of the finger to regain fine dexterity.

Who is this suitable for?
This body-driven device is suitable for patients with a finger absence between the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) and metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint. The MCPDriver is constructed using rigid stainless steel linkages which are anchored onto a comfortable backplate system, to allow for the residuum to carry out natural grip patterns whilst maintaining optimal strength.

Features & Benefits

  • Can be made for multiple finger amputations on one hand, and used in conjunction with the PIPDriver and ThumbDriver
  • Functional force of the device at the fingertips is reflective of the user’s input force
  • Power hook grasp posture effectively transfers load to the suspension around the wrist allowing objects of a substantial weight to be lifted
  • ‘Cage’ structure of the device protects the hypersensitive site of amputation without making physical contact
  • Silicone rubber tip pads mimic the natural fingertip and provide additional grip
  • Available in ten colour coatings
  • Silicone shims in three sizes provided so patients can adjust fit in accordance with volume fluctuations
  • Adjustable harness for optimal comfort
  • Restores multiple movements including pinch, key and cylindrical grasps, as well as grip stability
