A hand orthosis is being designed and developed for remote rehab and reanimating the hand of a person who has muscle atrophy or paralysis. By 3D printing the orthosis it will be possible to customise its size and facilitate its production. The orthosis will be completely 3D printed with all its articulations. Only the actuators will be added. It will be both an ergonomically comfortable and aesthetically pleasing to wear.
