Why COVVI?

Leading Technology

Clinical Support

Because human hands are amazing, but prosthetic devices lag wildly behind. High-tech products are expensive and therefore exclusive – we want to address this so that the very best technology is potentially available to everyone.

We also want to address the complicated nature of sophisticated mobility aids by making them cost-effective, easy to use, quick to repair, and simple to fit and configure.

We believe that COVVI can deliver the very best functionality and reliability, whilst being as accessible as possible.

Why compromise between a strength of a Myo and the dexterity of a multi-articulated hand?

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.

The Nexus Hand is enabled by an innovative actuator design with market-leading power density and comes in three different sizes: Small – 63/4, Medium – 71/4 – Large 73/4, operating with next level grip (70N) and speed (0.3s Tripod grip) capabilities.

It also 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 are focused on providing easier access to all tools needed for the fitting of a prosthesis and so have developed a demo tower with USB-C charging and electrode input dock, fully compatible with all EQD hands.

This, along with a rapidly responsive and highly dedicated customer service team, ensures a smoother and more effective journey for patients from the moment of initial consultation – all COVVI products are built and repaired in the USA.

Thumb Design

COVVI’s thumb design is fully customisable, but by default includes passive flexing capability (also applies to all fingers) and operates via thumb force and position sensors, and intuitive rocker switch e.g. tap the thumb right to move it to the right!

COVVI has built a product with an innovative and highly robust thumb. Using a twin motor design, a rapid 0.3 seconds for both full rotation and full-flex travel can be achieved for effective thumb control.

There are two operational modes:

• Latched: prevalent in prosthetics already, using opposed and unopposed grips – this allows easier access to multiple grips.

• Dynamic: simultaneous thumb flex and rotate (can use an open/open or co-contraction to cycle grip patterns) – allows for a wider variety of grips without external input.

Hand Cover

The Nexus Hand is protected by a highly water-resistant neoprene glove with colour and texture customisable rigid reinforcing panels.

All finger and thumb tips are touch-screen compatible, and all exterior components are easily cleanable and easily replaceable. The E-Paper screen on the Nexus Hand needs no power in order to function and can show information on grip modes to aid training, and error messages to diagnose any potential faults.

We designed the Nexus Hand based on measured data collated from human hands to give it a more anatomically proportionate and natural form with novel colours and materials to create a concept that you will be proud to wear. We offer a transparent or black glove with four striking cover colours to choose from.

Flex Wrist

The flex wrist is already integrated into the Nexus Hand as standard, featuring a passive sprung flex and push/push locking mechanism (+/-30°; great for bilateral users!), making the Nexus Hand the shortest flex-wrist-inclusive, multi-articulated hand on the market.

The wrist also has a latched lock option that can be activated to secure the hand into various positions.

Electrodes

The COVVI electrodes are compatible with most standard electrode cabling and operate at a 30-250Hz frequency band (highly sensitive at low levels).

Really easy to fit, our ‘T-shape’ construction drops through a hole in the socket wall and is locked in place with a spring-loaded clip. The flexible upper housing conforms well to the inside surface of socket walls.

Our electrodes also use biocompatible titanium contacts, ensuring a comfortable, skin-friendly and flexible upper surface, in addition to a notch filter to reduce interference.

Power Supply

Our product features an extremely light and highly flexible battery solution that will follow the contours of the limb without bending the cell. Charged via a waterproof USB-C, which is great for charging on the go, and is compatible with all 7.4V EQD hand systems.

Our arm connectors are military-grade and utilise simple latching features. The power supply is compact and robust with a rubberised design that communicates with the built-in E-Paper screen, displaying battery life among other information.

The power density is double that of competing systems: 7.4v 1600mAh, 2xCELLS (3.9in x 1.8in x 0.28in).

Business Development

I graduated with a 1st Class Honours degree in International Business Management, I speak fluent Spanish with academic exchanges in both Spain and Mexico. After graduating I decided to return to Mexico City in order to take up the opportunity of working as a Senior Buyer for Mexico’s leading department store chain with over 125 stores nationwide. The role allowed me to work with people from many different countries and develop organisational and interpersonal skills at a senior level.

Having returned to the UK, I am extremely excited to be part of the COVVI team working with distributors across Europe to deliver our world-class hand to as many people as possible.

As a bilateral upper extremity amputee, James understands the challenges end-users face in their daily lives. Having spent much of his career in business management, James embraced the opportunity to work within the prosthetic industry to help develop and improve this amazing technology that changes the lives of those who live with upper extremity limb differences.

In his spare time, James enjoys an active outdoor lifestyle through a variety of sports and activities. He’s always looking forward to sharing his adventures as he pursues his passions, which are possible because of the Nexus Hand.
