The i-LIMB Hand is a myoelectric prosthetic hand designed for use by individuals with upper extremity disabilities and hand amputees. The i-LIMB Hand can closely reflect the grasping action of a human hand through the articulating fingers able to close tightly around objects. Built-in stall detection tells each individual finger when it has sufficient grip on an object and, therefore, when to stop powering. Individual fingers lock into position until the user triggers an open signal through a mu
The i-LIMB Pulse is a myoelectric prosthetic hand designed for use by individuals with upper extremity disabilities and hand amputees. The i-LIMB Pulse features five articulating digits that closely reflect the grasping action of a human hand. It includes BioSim, a software toolset for clinical practitioners that features a selection of various control strategies such as dual- and single-site electrode options and real-time assessment of the user's myoelectric impulses. BioSim also enables and d
The NeuroControl Freehand System is a myoelectric prosthetic hand designed for use by individuals who have quadriplegia as a result of a spinal cord injury and have some use of an upper arm or shoulder. The system is an implanted medical device which enables many with quadriplegia to regain the use of a paralyzed hand. It combines neural prosthetics, using electrical stimulation to replace the original nerve impulses whose pathway is interrupted by spinal cord injury, with conventional reconstru
---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a prosthetic hand for a child born without fingers on his right hand and an individual who lost four fingers in an accident. Richard Van As, a developer from South Africa, developed a a prosthetic replacement for his hand that had already lost four fingers in an accident. Working alongside Washington-based prop manufacturer Ivan Owen, they created the "Robohand," which has also been fitted on a five-year old child in South Africa. This b
SensorHand Speed is a myoelectric prosthetic hand designed for use by individuals with upper extremity amputation. The hand can be opened and closed at speeds from 15 to 300 millimeters per second. To keep held objects from slipping, an AutoGrasp feature monitors the hand's grip force and changes the grip as needed. AutoGrasp can also be turned off. The hand comes with either a Lamination Ring or a Quick Disconnect Wrist for terminal device changes. A slip-clutch allows the user to release the h
The Transcarpal Hand DMC (Dynamic Mode Control) Plus, model 8E44, is a myoelectric prosthetic hand designed for use by individuals with upper extremity disabilities. Grip speed is variable from 15 to 130 millimeters per second. The high maximum grip speed and the balance of grip force and speed allow the user to experience more physiological gripping. The control contains both the original DMC control and the DMC plus mode, which includes a virtual hand switch. After gripping once with maximum g
The Utah Artificial Arm for above elbow amputations. Small, high- performance preamplifiers are used to monitor muscle activity and provide control inputs to the Arm. The prosthesis can actively lift two pounds and, when locked, support loads of up to fifty pounds. Two battery chargers and five back-up battery modules are supplied with each system. All essential internal components are modular for easy access and replacement. The prosthesis can be fitted with either an electric MyoBock hand or G
Control system for prosthetic hand. Small, high performance preamplifiers used to monitor muscle activity and provide control inputs to the hand and optional wrist rotator. Used with MyoBock hand, Greifer, or any other electric hand adapted for use with the system. Sensitive to small EMG signals; has proportional control and may be adjusted for a wide variety of muscle conditions. May be operated with either 9 volt battery, or Otto Bock rechargeable 6 volt battery.
