One handed flutes and saxes
Flutelab makes Onehand flutes and saxophones. The Onehand instruments are full range chromatic instruments of our own design. They can be made in left hand or right hand playable.
Because all fingers of the “good” hand must be applied to operating the mechanism, some other way must be found to hold the instrument. This usually is a ground support. If the other hand can play a role in balancing the instrument, so much better.
All over the globe
Flutelab Onehand instruments are being played in the USA, UK, Italy, Australia, Germany, Hungary and the Netherlands. In 2014, Maarten Visser of Flutelab was awarded the OHMI award in Playable category for the Onehand flute.
Having a flute that I can play one-handed still seems miraculous to me. It gives me so much joy to be able to play again after my stroke. I tell everyone that you are a genius!
