A precisely fitting hand prosthesis can improve function by restoring normal length, maintaining sensitivity through a thin lamina, protecting a sensitive stump and transmitting pressure and position sense. Although implant hand prosthesis has a superior outcome, due to economic factors, it may not be advisable in all patients. This article focuses on an innovative method of fabricating 'hollow' glove type of hand prosthesis which aims to reduce the weight and thereby the cost of prosthesis. It also enables us to color match the dorsal and ventral surfaces separately so that the prosthetic form, coloration and texture be as indiscernible as possible from the surrounding tissues.
