Touch Bionics, a provider of world-leading prosthetic technologies, has enhanced its already phenomenal i-Limb Ultra Revolution prosthetic hand with a slew of innovative technologies, including something called Grip Chips (Bluetooth-enabled devices that allow the user to assign a grip to an object) and i-Limb Skin Active TS (patients wearing this covering are able to use touchscreen devices such as smartphones or tablets with compatible i-Limb prostheses).
And there’s more. The company’s My Grips – Biosim and My i-Limb mobile Android apps have been enhanced by 12 additional custom grips, allowing patients to easily program custom settings to produce up to 36 different grip options.
The history of Touch Bionics began with a programme of work conducted at the Princess Margaret Rose Hospital in Edinburgh from 1963, starting with comprehensive research into developing prosthetic solutions for children affected by Thalidomide.
