How affordable is your product?
You say your product is lightweight & waterproof. Why?
The weight of your shaft depends on the geometry of your arm and the liner that your orthopedic technician thinks is best for you. Generally, the weight of the hands is between 150-300g. Our products are made out of PA12, a common material used in Medtech. Through the application of PA12, our products are resistant to water, chlorine water, and saltwater.
