What are the new Bionic arms advancements?
Losing a hand can be devastating and the functional disabilities following the loss of a hand can have disastrous consequences, both personally and professionally, unlike losing a leg.
A hand amputee would have been condemned to a hook prosthesis that had minimal function and held considerable social stigma a few hundred years ago.
However, recent developments in technology include a substitute hand for a hand amputee that replicates a whole host of typical hand functions and appears strikingly life-like. Bionic hands that look futuristic are also opted for by some consumers.
The newest bionic hands are now equipped with advanced pattern recognition algorithms to achieve a wide range of functional grips such as strength, precision near, adaptive, tripod etc. for individual finger control. These hands are estimated at 30-65 lakhs per hand. One of the recent developments in the bionic industry is 3D printed bionic weapons.
