The intention behind the design of TASKA™ was to make a super practical waterproof hand that “gives” and “flexes”. This may be why it feels more natural to use than others currently available, and why so many people easily adapt to the way it moves.
There are 7 key features that give TASKA™ a real practical advantage. Each feature has a "form follows function" aspect to it and combined make the TASKA™ much more intuitive and useful and a truly advanced prosthetic hand.
1. KNUCKLE BREAKAWAY
Anti-damage knuckle breakaway, is user resettable to provide additional robustness.
2. THE TASKA™ CONTROL SYSTEM
Simple touch and go Easy to use GRIP CYCLE buttons provide simple access to grips and client diagnostic help.
3. THE TASKA™ LOW PROFILE WRIST OPTION
A low profile wrist option allows the waterproofing to be extended up the socket. The LP Wrist also allows for 90ºdeg of mechanical rotation.
4. INBUILT FLEXIBLE WRIST
Locks easily. Every model of the TASKA hand has an inbuilt flexible wrist with three lockable positions as well as centre biased free flexion.
5. MOTORISED THUMB ROTATION
Motorised thumb rotation mimics the real movement of the hand and improves grip speed.
6. CONFIDENT GRIP
Hold things with more confidence. Soft pads between the fingers and on fingertips, complement the flexible fingers to provide unparalleled grip security.
7. FLEXIBLE FINGERS
The fingers on the TASKA hand are flexible and can laterally spread to allow the hand to effectively grip a wide variety of objects firmly. “To be able to grip confidently is huge. The design of the hand and the geometry of the fingers holds items really well – instead of ‘sort of ok’ as with other myoelectrics.”
