Prosthetic hand sets standards
Our hands fulfil many important functions in everyday life. After an upper-limb amputation, that learning how to use a prosthetic hand should be easy. A prosthetic hand should provide functionality that closely mirrors the functions of a biological hand. With the transcarpal hand (with DMC plus controller), the gripping speed and gripping force are controlled naturally according to the muscle signals. The two functions automatically adjust to the changed signal as the strength of the muscle signal is varied.
The DMS plus hand not only responds with great sensitivity but also features a unique safety mechanism. This "virtual hand switch" ensures that a firm grip – for example around an object – is only released after building up a strong muscle signal. This avoids loosening the grip unintentionally.
