Firms join forces on prosthetic fingers for veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan
from Modern Plastics Worldwide
Prosthetic fingers, molded from rigid polyurethane and then overmolded with a TPU elastomer, are helping returning soldiers regain the use of digits lost in war. Leading the injection molding effort on the project is Vanguard Plastics. Matthew Mikosz, president of Partial Hand Solutions (Southington, Conn.), built the prototype for the 'M-Fingers' device with material development assistance from custom compounder RTP Company (Winona, Minn.).
