A Real-World Bionic Hand
Psyonic has created the Ability Hand, a prosthetic device that offers faster and more functional mobility than other prostheses.
Leveraging proprietary bionic technology, this hand replicates touch-sensation for amputees. It uses dynamic fingertip sensors to detect pressure, and uses vibration to communicate sensation. This makes it the first device with multi-touch sensing capabilities — it enables wearers to actually feel what they're touching.
Psyonic was awarded more than two million dollars in grants from the National Science Foundation. Its device is already on the market and it's covered by Medicare, making it accessible at an affordable cost.
