Paul Frederick shared a replacement part he created for his mill:

Here’s an update from the e-NABLE open prosthetics community:

Yesterday, one of our e-NABLE parents asked the group if someone could design a hand that would allow her son to hold his cards easier – because while the current e-NABLE designs work well as tools for some things – they just wont work well for other activities like holding a hand of cards.

She wrote: “Hello all! I was wondering if anyone has come up with a design so that the kids could hold cards. Keegen always has a difficult time playing Uno, Go Fish and moer because he can’t see all of his cards at once.

Thank you so much!”

And within a few hours she had a response from one of our designers…. “You could get him one of those circular card holders 2 and a half inches in diameter. You can fasten it to his socket and he could hold his cards in his hand. I’ve seen them in stores. You could fasten it with a velcro strap.”
