OpenΒionics is an open-source
initiative for the development of affordable
robot hands and prosthetic devices, that can be easily reproduced using off-the-shelf materials. Our robot hands cost less that 100$ and weigh less than 200gr while our new anthropomorphic prosthetic hand costs less than 200$ and weighs less than 300gr. All files required for the replication of our hands, can also be found in our GitHub repository:
