    Thumb Prosthesis

    Is their something like this that I can buy? I have a thumb amputation and could benefit from something like this for typing and other day to day tasks. Let me know when you have the chance. Also, what's the feeling like on the thumb, it is plasticy or does it have the same type of consistency as skin.
