    Thumb-controlled 3-D printed prosthetic hand?

    I realize most of the available 3-D printed prosthetic hand designs control the opening and closing of the fingers and thumb by wrist movement. Do any designs exist where the 4-fingers open and close by thumb movement?

    My son was born with symbrachyltactyly of his left hand that left him with a fully functional thumb but without the 4 fingers. Such an alternative design may be more suitable for him.
