AxonHook -
tool hand prothesis


The AxonHook completes the Axon bus system of the leading prosthesis manufacturer ottobock. Due to the high grip force and a robust construction, this product is particularly suitable for manual work. However, it is also popular for activities such as cooking, gardening or handling small parts, where special precision, speed and grip are required.

The hook is easy to exchange with the Michelangelo hand - only one hand grip is necessary. Thus the new hook enables users to take a further step towards an independent everyday life.

"The power tool among the prostheses"


The design

Usability is paramount when it comes to efficient prosthetics and helpful aids for daily use. The most essential become most important. For that reason we gave the AxonHook a frienly, pragmatic look. The clean appearance is not seeking to compete with the natural hand. Moreover the aim was to optimise the mechanic and manual tasks of it. The primary, simple shapes do display this claim perfectly .
