Six to eight months are planned for the overall procurement of material for the Michelangelo Hand.
One production lot – currently 10 Michelangelo Hands – can be assembled by Ottobock Vienna in 2 to 3 weeks. Naturally this production volume can still be increased, but overall it clearly shows that such high-tech products continue to require a great deal of precision and detailed manual work.
The entire documentation, i.e. the documents prescribed for the production of a medical device (e.g. performance and functional specifications, design, inspection and testing specifications, design drawings, work instructions etc.) for the Michelangelo Hand encompasses around 2,000 to 2,500 pages.
The required software code (code for programming the entire system) for the overall Michelangelo Hand system encompasses 63,019 lines.
