MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Instructor-cynologist of the security department of IK-52, warrant officer of the internal service Alexei Medvedev made a prosthesis for his friend, who was injured at work – he lost three fingers of his right hand.
As the inventor said, he was interested in everything related to 3D modeling, and for this purpose he purchased a 3D printer. He learned that there are bionic prosthetic hands and began to design such a prosthesis in a special program. The work took about two weeks. After its completion, Alexey printed out the details on a 3D printer.
The prosthesis imitates a cable tension grip. His friend can now pick up small items and even drive a car.
With his project, Alexei Medvedev entered the All-Russian student competition “Your Move”, which was held on November 27, 2021 in Moscow. There, the development was evaluated by a resident of the Skolkovo Innovation Center, a company that develops bionic prostheses. Alexei Medvedev was invited to an internship at Skolkovo.
According to an employee of IK-52, at present the problem of developing finger prostheses is very relevant, because many people need them. And he is glad that he could help a friend.
Aleksey has served in the penitentiary system for three years, studying in absentia at the Shadrinsk Pedagogical University. His future specialty is working with children with developmental disabilities.
