Prosthetic Tentacle

Prosthetic Tentacle

Kaylene Kau created a really cool Prosthetic Tentacle as part of a project to explore new approaches to upper-limb prosthetic design at the Industrial Design Department at the University of Washington.

Through extensive research I found that the prosthetic functioned as an assistant to the dominant functioning hand. The prosthetic needed to be both flexible and adjustable in order to accommodate a variety of different grips.
