    VINCENTwrist Wrist joints for adults and children | Standard, extra short, adjustable flexion | Low weight | Short length quicksnap | quicksnap+flexion | short | short+flexion VINCENTwrist quicksnap The standard wrist joint makes it possible to quickly and easily attach and remove the hand prosthesis. The joint offers compatibility with other systems such as DynamicArm or Boston Digital Arm™. ​ VINCENTwrist short Our transcarpal joint convinces with its uniquely low mounting depth and is therefore also suitable for long arm stumps. In addition to the prosthesis-side joint, the shaft-side casting ring (24.7 g / 0.05 lb) is also particularly light. ​ The standard wrist and the transcarpal joint can be rotated noiselessly and gridlessly. The force required for rotation can be individually adjusted for each user. Both wrists can be combined with the joint VINCENTwrist flexion that can be angled. ​ VINCENTwrist flexion The joint has a large range of movement and allows for flexion from -54° to +54°. lt is particularly suitable for bilateral users due to its switchless operation. The position is changed by pulling, moving and releasing. ​ Our four wrist options are characterized by their low mounting depths. ​ Due to the intelligent multi-material-mix, the wrists are particularly light and at the same time very robust and corrosion resistant. ​ Flyer VINCENTwrist Technical specifications VINCENTwrist quicksnap | quicksnap+flexion short | short+flexion we love perfection

    Close Erfahrungsbericht - AKTUALISIEREN Von Isabelle ​ Hi, ich bin Isabelle, trage eine myoelektrische Oberarmprothese und bin seit 2020 stolze Besitzerin meiner VINCENTevolution3. ​ Ich muss schon sagen, als ich das allererste Mal alleine mit der Hand im Alltag dastand, war ich dezent überfordert. Die Steuerung der Hand erfordert Umdenken: Kein intuitives Zugreifen mehr, sondern aktive Anspannung meiner Bizeps- und Trizeps-Muskelsignale. Das ist für den Ungeübten anstrengend, sowohl für die Muskeln als auch fürs Gehirn. 16 verschiedene Griffe können mit diesen zwei Muskelsignalen anhand eines Griffschemas angesteuert werden. Da stand ich also und versuchte mir auszumalen, welcher Griff am ehesten dazu geeignet war, diese Teebeutel-Verpackung zu öffnen. Anschließend strengte ich krampfhaft meine grauen Zellen an, um mir das Griffschema in Erinnerung zu rufen, damit ich weiß, in welcher Kombination ich meine Muskeln anspannen muss, um in diesen Griff zu gelangen. Und dann erst konnte ich die Aktion starten. ​ Anfangs musste ich in Kauf nehmen, dass Alltagsaktivitäten deutlich mehr Zeit in Anspruch nehmen, als wenn ich sie einfach mit einer Hand erledigen würde. Ich musste Geduld, Willensstärke und Nachsichtigkeit mir selbst gegenüber zeigen und stets hochkonzentriert und vorsichtig die Steuerung der Prothese etablieren. Doch ich wollte unbedingt, dass diese coole Hand mit all ihren Funktionen ein Teil von mir wird. So habe ich konsequent und überall im Alltag mit ihr geübt, wo es möglich war. ​ Übung macht den Meister und das Gehirn ist durchaus in der Lage, umzulernen. Durch meinen Einsatz habe ich schnell Fortschritte gemerkt: Die Steuerung funktioniert schneller und flüssiger, Erfolgserlebnisse nehmen zu, ich werde geschickter im Umgang mit der Prothese. Tassen zerschellen nicht mehr auf dem Boden, Flaschen werden nicht mehr mit voller Kraft zusammengedrückt und ich muss nicht mehr zusätzliche Zeit für Alltagsaktivitäten einplanen. Die Ansteuerung der Griffe funktioniert automatisch, das Griffschema hat sich eingeprägt. ​ Mittlerweile ist die Prothese ein Teil von mir geworden, den ich nicht mehr missen möchte. Nun wäre ich aufgeschmissen, wenn ich das Leben nur noch mit einem Arm beschreiten würde. In so vielen Alltagssituationen hilft mir die Prothese: Beim Schuhe Zubinden, beim Verpackungen Öffnen oder aber beim Öffnen meiner Wohnungstür, diese muss man nämlich mit einer Hand heranziehen, während man den Schlüssel im Schloss dreht. Ich habe die Vincent-Hand mit all ihren Vorteilen zu schätzen gelernt. Präzision und Feinmotorik der Hand sind unglaublich, mit dem Pinzettengriff kann ich sogar die kleinen Laschen von Joghurtbechern greifen und aufreißen. Anhand von Vibrationsfeedback beim Zugreifen konnte ich außerdem mit der Zeit eine Art Tastsinn etablieren. Ich kann mittlerweile genau einschätzen, wie fest ich mit der Hand zugreife und wann die aufgewendete Kraft ausreichend ist und wann nicht. Die Prothese hat mir Selbstständigkeit, Akzeptanz, Normalität im Alltag und ein Gefühl von Vollständigkeit gegeben. Sie ist mir kein Fremdkörper mehr, die Prothese ist jetzt mein Arm.

  • Fluidhand3 | Vincent Systems

    2000 - Fluidhand 3 Up With the third generation of the Fluidhand, Schulz transferred the technology of flexible fluid actuators to a hand prosthesis. To achieve higher grasping forces, the drives were modified for grasping even heavy objects. The unfolded silicone tubes reinforced with fabric were replaced by miniature folded bellows, which in turn were encased in fabric and attached to aluminum joints in the folds by nylon threads to keep their shape. Three drive elements in each finger, with the two distal bellows coupled together, and two drives in the thumb allow 14 joint axes to move in this hand, equivalent to 14 DOF at 10 iDOF. The fluid actuators were driven by means of miniature hydraulics. The control system, consisting of pump, valve, electronics, sensors and tank, was connected to the prosthesis via a hose approximately 1 m long. The hydraulic unit was the size of a portable telephone and was worn on the belt. The load-bearing structure of the prosthetic hand was modeled on the skeleton of the human hand. The radiating metacarpal bones, which merge into the long fingers, are moveably mounted in the carpus, and spring elements are located between the metacarpal bones to elastically stretch the metacarpus. This design achieves a naturally acting passive abduction of the long fingers, with a positive effect on the adaptability of the hand during grasping and on the natural feel of the hand. The bellows drives are inflated with fluid, usually water, at a pressure of up to 6bar when a finger joint is moved. The expanding bellows thereby flexes the finger joint. The extension of the joint is achieved partly by the suction of the drive, partly by an additional elastic restoring band. The weight of the prosthesis is 190g, the grasping force on the finger is approx. 5N. In this prosthesis functional sample, all fingers were simultaneously filled and deflated via the hydraulic hose to investigate hand function and adaptive grasping. As a cosmetic cover and to create a functional surface, a customized latex glove was fabricated. A first functional sample was successfully tested at the Orthopedic University Hospital in Heidelberg. Schulz, by now head of an interdisciplinary research group, was now able to establish work on a hand prosthesis as a program-oriented research priority. Up

  • Fluidhand5 | Vincent Systems

    2002 - Fluidhand 5 Up The Fluidhand 5 was designed with the aim of integrating all system components of miniature hydraulics into the metacarpals in order to make the hand compatible with established socket systems. The prosthesis can be connected to all standard prosthetic sockets via a quicksnap wrist. Both the myoelectric sensors and the energy storage of the socket are used. The pump, fluid tank, valve bank and controller are located in and on the metacarpus. With the reduction in tank size, the number of fluidic drive was reduced to 8. The ring finger and little finger are flexed over one drive each. In the weight-optimized frame in sandwich construction, the elastic finger abduction was integrated. Five valves control the 8 drives of the hand, with the ring, little and middle fingers being hydraulically connected to each other. ​ Each of the 8 bellows-like drives is covered with a fabric that ensures the dimensional stability of the elastic inner chambers when a fluid is pumped into the cavity at a pressure of up to 6bar. The central chambers are fixed at the joint pivot point by loadable cords, thus the expansion of the bellows is redirected into a 90 degree rotational movement of the finger joint. The resetting of a joint is achieved by negative pressure in the bellows drive when the drive chambers are emptied; an elastic band supports the stretching of the joints. For storing the drive medium, usually water, Fluidhand 5 experimented with both foil membrane tanks and pressure storage tanks consisting of an elastic hose tank and a stable housing. Up

    VINCENTpartial3+ Waterproof to IP67 | Modular design | Individually customizable | Single Finger Control Light and compact | Numerous grip types, selectable at any time | Available in titanium The VINCENTpartial3+ is the third generation of our prosthesis series for partial hand fittings with motor-driven single fingers and thumbs. ​ The VINCENTpartial3+ is the waterproof design variant of the VINCENTpartial3. Hand washing under running water is possible without any problems, provided that the design of the prosthesis shaft also permits this. ​ The prosthesis can be adapted to different fitting situations thanks to our modular system. The fingers, thumb, control unit and batteries can be placed individually to accommodate an anatomical reconstruction of the hand, as far as technically possible. ​ The fingers and thumb are attached to the prosthesis stem via a steel frame concept. This determines the hand width as well as the position and orientation of the fingers. Control can be done via EMG sensors using muscle tension or via tactile FSR sensors. Grasp selection and proportional control of the fingers follow our standardized control concept. Numerous different grips can be achieved by timed opening and closing signals as long as four long fingers and a thumb are used. If fewer electrically operated fingers are used, the grasp types are reduced accordingly. Alternatively the Single Finger Control (SFC) method can be used to control as many as 5 fingers individually by up to 5 input sensors. This makes a more intuitive and faster usage of the prosthesis possible. ​ The fingers and thumb are made of a high-strength aluminum alloy. We also offer a special version in titanium. For a secure grasp, all components have a rubber coating. As with all our models, the index finger tip is touchscreen-compatible. ​ The particularly powerful, compact, and at the same time robust design of our partial hand prosthesis is unique and sets us apart from all other solutions. This makes the prosthesis particularly suitable for everyday use. High quality and outstanding design go without saying.

  • Fluidhand9 | Vincent Systems

    2006 - Fluidhand 9 Up The Fluidhand 9 has 5 drives of different sizes. The base joints of the index finger and middle finger are equipped with stronger drives. The elastic fluid tank is located in the wrist. When the fingers are emptied, they are stretched and the fluid is pumped from the finger joints into the elastic tank in the wrist, bending the wrist and opening the hand further. The pump is noise-isolated and free-swinging in a CFRP tank; valves and controls are located in the metacarpus, which is completely covered with CFRP. The thumb with a drive in the base pivots between flat hand and opposition position to the three-point grip. ​ For reasons of optimizing speed and tank size, separate drives for the ring and little fingers were omitted, but these two long fingers are actively moved by coupling with the base joint of the middle finger. The control valve for the thumb drive is located in the distal thumb phalanx. The wrist with a 4-pole coaxial insert is compatible with all stem systems, control is via two EMG sensors, and it is possible to switch between several grip types by means of short switching signals. This last version of the Fluidhand for the time being also features a Bluetooth interface for mobile devices as well as a vibrotactile sense of touch. The Fluidhand 8 is currently the last further development of the multi-articulating hydraulic hand based on flexible fluid actuators. The aim of this hand version was to provide a pre-product ready for series production for a hand prosthesis commercially available on the fitting component market and to convince potentially interested parties of the development for marketing. The bionic hand prosthesis, which is already suitable for everyday use, was manufactured and tested in a small series. It is thus the first bionic multi-articulating hand prosthesis and also the first hydraulic hand prosthesis.
