i-LIMB, The Prothetic High-Tech Explosion

Touch Bionics is the UK-based award winning company focusing on the supply of electrically powered Upper Limb Prostheses (ULP).

The Touch Bionics i-LIMB™ Hand offers users a step-change in functionality and performance, enabling patients to do more with their prosthetic hand. For example, the i-LIMB Hand has individually articulating fingers, a rotating thumb and a range of grip patterns. All these features are combined in a hand that is more anatomically correct than any other hand available.

Furthermore, the modularity of the i-LIMB System gives Touch Bionics’ customers the ability to fit clients with powered digits through to a complete arm, left or right, child to adult, from a small number of components. The products are also more anatomically
correct than any currently on the market, which allows for increased
functionality and improved cosmesis.

The i-LIMB Hand will be the first product available from the Touch Bionics i-LIMB System. The entire i-LIMB System, available in 2006/2007, will be the world’s first complete endoskeletal modular arm system.
