European Inventor Award 2013 - David Gow (SMEs)

74 views

The innovative modular design of the i-limb hand invented by David Gow allows the wearer to move individual fingers and perform complicated grips. This makes it the first ‘fully articulated' prosthetic hand in the world. Muscle movement in the residual limb is detected by the hand's on-board computer and translated into movements in the prosthetic. Previous attempts at creating functional prosthetic hands had failed to deliver the range of motion and digit articulation users require for life and work.
