Currently, the artificial hand has been undertaken by suppliers who make joints meeting the Indian Standards Institutions (ISI) mark. It is called the Jaipur Hand. BMVSS mainly fabricates the sockets.
However, the Manipal University Jaipur is developing a Bio-Electrical Artificial Hand in collaboration with BMVSS. Negotiations are also going on with Calpoly University LA to develop the Bio-Electrical Artificial Hand.
In addition to the above, a major research project on the below-elbow artificial hand is underway at Stanford University in collaboration with BMVSS. The model is likely to be functionally more efficient and inexpensive compared to the Jaipur Hand.
