Touch Bionics Focuses on i-LIMB Hand, Upper Body Prosthetics
Scotland-based Touch Bionics has released the first commercial fully-articulated artificial hand — the well-regarded and award-winning i-Limb. The product is the result of more than 20 years of R&D and looks and acts like a real human hand. The i-Limb is a major advance in bionics and patient care. While the market for prosthetic hands is limited, Touch Bionics has a three-year lead over competing products.
