The i-limb ultra prosthetic hand, a brain child of Touch Bionics, is not only controlled by signals for the nerves in the patient's hand, but also through an iOS app that allows the user to control the hand’s grip using their smartphone.
Touch Bionics’ i-limb ultra revolution prosthetic hand features a rotating thumb, five individually powered fingers, a rotatable wrist and aluminium chassis.
Each of the fingers bends at the joints and can be adapted to fit around any shape of object that the owner wants to grasp. It can also be used for everything from typing to tying shoe laces.
