ELBOW DRIVEN: Users must have a functional elbow that bends to force the fingers closed on the hand.
This device was created for those that have a functional elbow and a considerable amount of forearm but no wrist or not enough wrist/palm to power a wrist driven device. This design is for those who have too much forearm for the RIT arm but not enough wrist/palm for a wrist powered device.
