Give a hand by building one
Helping Hands is a philanthropic project run by the Ellen Meadows Foundation. We deliver prosthetic hands to end-users in third-world countries at zero cost to the recipient. Your decision to participate will directly impact someone’s ability to live an independent life.
We strive to provide a simple yet fully functional prosthetic hand to every person who needs one and can benefit from it, and do so at no charge for the recipient.
The LN-4 is a simple, fully functional, heavy-duty, easy to maintain, full-hand prosthesis. An assembled LN-4 weighs 450 g, attaches to the residual limb within a couple of seconds and safely carries loads of up to 12 kg.
The need is great
LN-4 recipients may have lost their hand(s) through trauma, disease, or congenital conditions. Many of them are civilian land mine victims. There are more than 100 million active land mines estimated to be still dispatched around the globe. More than 300.000 people worldwide have suffered an injury from a land mine explosion, 20% of them are children.
