Taska Handgen 2: Waterproof myoelectric hand prosthesis from Taska Prosthetics

The myoelectric TASKA Hand Manual is a robust, waterproof, even submersible prosthetic hand for users with a more active lifestyle. 

The three advantages:

  • Robustness
  • Waterproof
  • 20 Natural movement patterns

Functions and advantages

Everything you need to know about the features and benefits of the Taska Handgen 2: Waterproof myoelectric hand prosthesis from Taska Prosthetics need to know.

You can clean, shake hands at work again and even perform activities that require flexible fingers and wrist. The wrist can be separated. Dual release buttons make changing hands much easier and faster, improving grip security and preventing unwanted wrist separation. Compatibility with all industry-standard QD lamination cuffs, as well as the wrist rotation system, means you can start using the Taska QD right away. Thanks to coded, laterally compliant fingers and high-speed thumb rotation, the TASKA HandGen2 is waterproof beyond the wrist - without the need for a glove. The TASKA Hand offers users over 20 selectable grip patterns. The hand is available in two sizes and two wrist variations. The hand can be controlled either by muscle signals and / or a multifunction switch on the back of the hand.

Three pre-programmed grip patterns with three main grips can be pressed on a button on the back of the hand as standard. Five additional grips can be switched by pressing a key. The change of thumb position from opposition position to lateral position changes automatically depending on the grip pattern.

One can individualize the grip patterns to his needs through the own TASKA app. The TASKA hand is certified according to standard IP67. Cosmetic cladding of the hand is not available.

The Taska Hand App guarantees extreme ease of use.

The waterproof prosthetic hand protects the user from costly damage to the fingers. Due to the unique overload protection in the knuckles, the prosthesis prevents costly damage to the fingers.

 The core of this technology is based on the laminating cuff, because it is the key to a waterproof connection of the wrist.

TASKA is designed to provide EMG electrodes, pattern recognition systems and compatibility with all industry standard quick release grippers to give orthotists and users more options.


Fields of application of the Taska hand prosthesis:


  • Activities that require hands to be briefly wet or immersed in water
  • Wash hands
  • Washing dishes
  • Car wash
  • Walking in the rain
  • Use of a garden hose
  • Activities that involve vibration of the hand
  • Use of motorized garden equipment, e.g. lawn mowers,
  • Use of small or medium size power tools
  • Activities that place moderate strain on the hand, e.g.: light gardening, carrying a suitcase
  • Low-impact work in the workshop
