A virtual-reality headset like this one could be a big deal for patients who suffer from spinal cord injuries.
But if you’re a patient who just wants to play with your virtual hand, there’s a better option out there: a 3D printed hand.
The 3D printing company Shapeways has released a 3-D printed prosthetic hand with a unique design that’s been designed specifically for those who have spinal cord injury.
And it’s not just about replacing the damaged fingers with a prosthetic one, either.
It also allows for a better range of motion.
The new hand is made from a 3rd-party polymer that’s coated in a substance called Polyamide, which is an organic material that helps the prosthetic to withstand high temperatures and pressure.
It’s used to strengthen the polymer, which improves the mechanical properties of the prosthesis.
The company has also released the 3D model of the hand, which was designed by designer and 3D printer specialist Matthew Wiegand.
Wiegands model of a 3d printed prosthesis, which he created by using Shapeways 3D Printing software.
The hand is actually made of three parts.
The first is a plastic piece that is used to create the prosthetics surface.
It has three parts: a flexible core, which supports the prostheses grip; a flexible tube that connects to the core, and a flexible layer that attaches to the tube.
The third part of the design is the skin, which forms the back of the plastic core, to keep the hand from cracking.
Wiegand also designed a hand that has an adjustable angle of rotation, to help it bend and move in different ways.
The angle of the rotation can be adjusted with the thumb, and also to adjust the angle of pressure between the thumb and the fingers.
Wigand says he wanted the design to be flexible, so he could use the hand for both physical and mental activities, such as playing video games.
The hand is designed to work with a variety of prosthetics, such a knee replacement, a spinal cord stimulator, and even a wrist prosthesis for people who have arthritis or nerve damage.
According to Wieganding, the new hand has a range of movements.
You can use it to play games, to stretch, or to perform a variety other physical activities.
The device can also be used for other tasks, like holding a phone or a tablet.
Wigand claims it is comfortable to use, and has been worn for five weeks.
While this hand has been designed for patients with spinal cord damage, it can also help with other health issues.
The 3D-printed hand is flexible enough to bend in many different directions, and can be used to bend up to a 30-degree angle.
There are other possibilities, too, like using the hand to make a sling.
“I want to make prosthetics for people with spinal injuries, but the way I see it, you need to have a lot of control over what the material you use is,” Wiegande told Mashable.
“There’s a lot more to this than just your fingers.”
