Two different designs of lightweight experimental prosthetic hand are presented. The weight of the first hand is reduced by 50% compared to a conventional prosthetic hand, whereas the functionality of the second hand is increased by additional prehension types. Optionally, a tactile feedback system can be integrated. Due to multiple articulated digits and flexible materials, both hands are able to conform to the shape of an object held. This significantly reduces the necessary grip force and results in stable holding of an object. For a natural appearance, the hands are covered with a cosmetic silicone rubber glove.
