3D HandSens Kick-off - 3D printed exoskeletons to measure hand mobility.
On Jan. 10, 2023 the 3DHandSens consortium met for the kick-off at the Fraunhofer IWS. After a technical discussion about the requirements and solution ideas, we toured the labs and pilot plants of the IWS. The interdisciplinary exchange between medicine, sensor technology and additive manufacturing did not stop at the joint dinner and we are happy about this successful project start. The goal of the project is a 3D-printed, patient-specific exoskeleton with integrated miniaturized sensors to make the healing process of hand injuries painless and efficient measurable and to be able to accompany it medically.
