JAWS is your answer to the many challenges persons with a hand absence face. JAWS is unique and powerfully functional. JAWS is a heavy duty, voluntary opening, prehensile-style, terminal device.
JAWS can be used with and without a cable harness system for versatility. JAWS can be mounted to a “myo” or electric arm with a special myo to body powered adapter. JAWS was conceived by amputee Bob Radocy, CEO of TRS prosthetics. Bob kept receiving inquiries from persons missing a hand, especially those using “myo” or electric hands frustrated with the electric technology’s performance but not wanting to go full voluntary closing, body power with a harness system. These individuals wanted to hold tools, handles, ride ATVs and snowmobiles, as well as other “off road” and “on water” vehicles like jet skis. Additionally there was a need to safely control and steer drivable farm and ranch equipment. JAWS was conceptualized with these needs “in mind” and over a period of two years was designed and developed. The uses for JAWS are endless.
JAWS uses “Vector” mechanics and technology. Vector technology was championed by Dr. Lawrence Carlson beginning in the 1990s into the 2000s. Dr. Carlson is a professor emeritus of mechanical engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Vector technology allows the grip force of the prosthesis to be easily adjusted in force by changing the direction through which the spring force acts. This adjustability provides significant versatility, as well as the ability to achieve much higher gripping forces than are available in most voluntary opening terminal devices. Bob, who has worked closely with Dr. Carlson on the vector technology, took the concept and embedded it into JAWS. Combining the vector technology into a heavy duty gripping terminal device proved to be the perfect “match” of concepts.
