With cable-controlled prostheses, a Hook can be used alternatively to the System Hand as a grasping tool. Hooks are especially suited for activities that demand extreme precision for grasping smaller objects such as screws or nails. The Hook is a reliable, robust and resilient tool for manual labour or activities in a difficult environment (e.g. solvents, moisture).
Hooks are opened via the body harness worn on the upper body. They close independently by means of spring or elastic components. Hooks are made of particularly robust materials (e.g. stainless steel).
In addition, they are easy to clean and have minimal weight (e.g. aluminum alloy). Standard and working hooks are available for adults, children and adolescents.
Whereas standard hooks aim for a universal application, working hooks with their robust construction as well as diverse and specialised grip possibilities are especially suited for crafts and carpentry.
