Leipzig, Germany – 3 May 2016 – Touch Bionics, a provider of world-leading upper limb prosthetic technologies, today announced the introduction of the supro wrist rotator.
“We believe that the supro wrist, in combination with the i-limb™ hand, will offer wearers even greater dexterity with which to perform activities of everyday living”. said Ian Stevens, CEO, Touch Bionics. “By utilising our i-mo™ technology in conjunction with our new digital electrodes, it is now possible to move both wrist and fingers simultaneously into the correct position for the chosen task”.
“I can now activate a grip in my hand and my supro wrist will automatically move to the correct position”. said Claudia Breidbach, i-limb™ quantum user “This makes accomplishing everyday tasks that little bit easier for me”.
