In this section, we will guide you through the key components of the Covvi hand and its associated products including the battery system and electrodes. We have provided technical summaries for the benefit of curious clinicians, for users who want to understand their device better, and for everyone else to see for themselves what sets Covvi apart.
We also get into the specific features of the hand itself including the wrist system, thumb design and the hand covers that you can choose from.
As the Covvi hand develops with research and technology it is likely that this page will be regularly updated, and so you may notice new features popping up here all the time. Keeping checking in with us on this page to ensure you’re in the know about the latest iterations Covvi has to offer.
Is It Right For You?
Covvi appreciates that limb difference literally comes in all shapes and sizes, and we understand the differing experiences and relationships you may have with it. No matter what you decide is right for you, Covvi wants to be there for support should you need it.
We like to think that at Covvi we represent the future and want to empower our users: not only in equipping them with the latest upper-body prosthetic tech but also with something that users can customize in a way that speaks to their personality. Something that is undeniably them.
Covvi has designed its prosthetic technology around the necessity of functionality and accessibility, for both clinicians and patients. In order to achieve this, we have ensured our designs are world-leading in their capability, are personalizable to each and every user, can withstand the strength and speed pressures required of a hand for everyday life, and most importantly are easy to use.
The Covvi hand is the most advanced of its kind for the intuitive default grip patterning that it offers in addition to the grip-mapping capabilities that allows the user to input custom-made gesturing into their device with their clinician. Hands are tools people often take for granted, but they are capable of so much!
We at Covvi understand that and want you to get to know each of the grip patterns as if they were your closest companion.
The Covvi team are highly experienced in the prosthetics field and have collaborated throughout, to put into practice the lessons learned from preceding designs.
It has a three-way digit control system, in addition to an in-built e-paper screen that can display notifications, troubleshooting issues, and training information during set-up.
Covvi Connect & App Overview
Covvi Connect has been designed to make users and clinicians’ lives much easier in the process of setting up a bionic prosthesis. The primary objective when designing this app was user-friendliness and simplicity – no dongles, no CDs, or any other unnecessary extras.
Our Covvi Connect app is basically the manual control center for the Covvi hand and from here it can do everything from managing electrode settings and grip switch triggers, to measuring input and troubleshooting in the event of potential faults.
The Covvi team are highly experienced in the prosthetics field and have collaborated throughout to put into practice the lessons learned from previous designs they have worked on.
