The device which started it all.
The PIPDriver is designed for individuals who have an amputation at the middle of distal phalanx. As an articulating, body-driven prosthesis, the PIPDriver restores length, provides dexterity, replaces a missing DIP joint, and protects sensitive residua. Each device is custom-designed and fabricated to within millimeters of a patient’s unique anatomy to successfully mimic the complex motion of a finger.
The PIPDriver gets its strength from a rigid linkage driven by the residuum and is self-suspended comfortably on the base of the finger. We accurately align the prosthetic joints with the patient’s anatomic ones to provide the most natural motion and form possible.
The PIPDriver is driven by an intact PIP joint with enough residuum distal to the joint to engage the ring. For an amputee who doesn’t meet these minimum requirements, it is still possible to obtain functional benefits from this device. However, special consideration will have to be made prior to ordering the prosthesis.
OTHER DESIGN FEATURES INCLUDE:
- Custom-designed to fit comfortably and suit daily needs
- Easy to don, doff, clean, and care for

How To Get The PIPDriver
Once insurance approval has been obtained, the prosthetist will request a Naked Prosthetics sizing kit and complete a full evaluation of the patient. Using the sizing kit, the prosthetist will complete the intake forms as directed and submit all information to Naked Prosthetics, where our engineers will design and manufacture a custom, functional finger prosthesis individualized for the patient’s needs and anatomy.
“This is the first time I’ve played guitar in more than a year, just two hours after getting fitted!” —Jon, Michigan
“It is important to learn new skills after hand trauma,” he explains. “After a loss is the best time to explore something new because there is no benchmark of success to meet. You have to find your new normal in the little things.”
“You may feel hopeless in the moment, but it does get better. And you will be surprised at what you could learn. I am a different person now and I grew from the experience.”
"I am confident that I can do more things and then some with this new opportunity given to me—to inspire others who are just like me and to show them that for every setback, there is a major comeback!"
“It sounds cheesy and it really just takes time. You just have to see that it isn’t the end of the world. It could’ve been worse. Considering everything, it’s a small part of my life. I could’ve lost my hand, my arm. If you could see my truck, I don’t even know how I survived.”
"It’s a game changer for me. 20 years ago, as a freshly injured kid walking into a prosthetist’s office and being completely disheartened about what was available to help replace my fingers. Now, I finally have something that makes me feel like I have a bit of a whole hand again.”
