This paper proposes a new framework design for the lightweight transradial prosthesis. This device was designed to be light-weight, easily manufactured, inexpensive, and to have a high interstitial free space volume for electrical components and customization. Press-fit junctions between fins allow for little or no adhesives, allowing for easily replaceable parts. Designs were constructed out of chipboard and run through an assortment of tests to see if each design iterations met structural design specifications.
