the ‘i-limb ultra revolution’ by american company touch bionics provides the ability to gradually increase the strength of its grip on an object. utilizing pulsing and ‘vari-grip’ features, the prosthetic hand implements a firmer hold when conducting tasks such as tying shoelaces or holding a heavy bag securely. a wide selection of automated grips and gestures aid users in completing daily tasks; including index points for typing, precision pinch mode for grabbing small objects – or natural hand position for walking or while at rest. equipped with a biosim software application, the assistive device can be controlled via smartphone, allowing instant access to 24 different clasp patterns. as each finger bends at the natural joints, the aluminum-built prosthetic accurately adapts around the shape of an object with greater ease and flexibility. after a period of inactivity, the handautomatically retracts to a natural position.
