Accommodating Existing Thumb

Postby ignatius13 » Wed Jan 20, 2016 3:14 pm

This is my first hand for someone with an existing digit. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

A thumbless hand can be found here: https://github.com/andreasbastian/e-nab ... /thumbless

I break hands and then tell you how I did it.

I'd like to talk about what you've found here.

My son has only a finger/thumb on a short palm. The digit does have 1 knuckle, so some opposability, but only a very light pinch.

I'd like to see if what is mentioned here will be a good road to follow.

Thanx!
