Awesome prosthetic bionicsMikey 2 comments
There have been some amazing advanced in medical technology recently but this one is particularly impressive.
The i-LIMB is the worlds most advanced bionic prosthetic which allows the wearer to control 5 individual digits via signals sent from existing muscles. The degree of accuracy is outstanding given the gentleman in the video below has only been using it for 4 weeks. Said Dr Geoff Robinson:
"Touch Bionics have fundamentally changed the benchmark for what constitutes an acceptable prosthesis ...Having tried it myself, I can vouch for the fact that it really does work in the way portrayed, even if one is fortunate enough to still have one's own real hand alongside"
My only grievance: What's the fascination with every tech company prefixing their products with the letter i? I thought Apple had dibs on that anyway.
