This is the new innovation of artificial hand for handicaps, i-Limb, the world’s first bionic hands. Touch Bionics, a UK-based prothesis developer announced on July 23, 2007 that its i-Limb bionic hand has been made available for use in the United States and Europe. The i-Limb is one of the first widely available prosthetic hands with five individual motors powering each finger, enhancing dexterity and allowing patients to do activities that they were unable to do previously and affording its user a surprisingly wide range of motion.


Additionally, the i-Limb uses dynamic touch detection which can sense when a finger has sufficient grip on an object and stop powering. It using electric signals generated by working muscles to control the hand. It is definitely a good news for those who need it.
