Posted on: July 23rd, 2013 by Nancy No Comments

Touch Bionics has developed a "next generation" prosthetic hand that can be controlled using a mobile app. The i-limbâ„¢ ultra revolution prosthetic features a powered rotating thumb, 24 grip options and extra sensitive electrodes, all controlled by a single tap of a smartphone screen. Users have unparalleled dexterity which enables them to perform daily tasks such as typing and grabbing small objects.

It's as easy as tying your shoes.
