Three dimensional (3D) printed prostheses have emerging trends in recent years. They become popular with their cost-effective and easy to build structures which provided by the developments of the additive manufacturing technology. By these advancements, many open-source prosthetic hand models started to appear in the market. However, some of them are not suitable for all kinds of patients yet. So, a good deal of designs has failed to meet all of the user´s physical needs which might cause the device not being used by the patients. In this paper, it is tried to do a parametric design and produce a mechanical prosthesis with a simple mechanical design that can be adapted easily to each patient. For this purpose, the information about a planar four-link mechanism, design, and analysis steps of the mechanism and how it can be improved in the future has been discussed.
