bebionic3 is the culmination of many years of development and is the most advanced commercially available bionic hand in the world today.
Reliable, speedy and versatile, bebionic3 is a myoelectric prosthetic hand that can be configured to handle almost any everyday life activity. It is designed to be stronger and more durable than other hands available, meaning that it can be worn daily, and withstand the stresses and strains of constant use.
The arm uses some of the most advanced medical technology to date. It consists of two electrodes in a socket, with one connected to the biceps and the other linked to the triceps. Electronic impulses from the muscles and nerve endings create a current, which triggers movement in the hand. So, for example, a biceps tensioning closes the hand while a triceps action opens it again.
Moreover, thanks to the programming software bebalance, which is supplied with every prosthetic hand, bebionic3 can be managed, monitored and configured wirelessly, using smart electronics and easy-to-use flexible interfaces. With bebalance, it is possible to customise everything about bebionic3 quickly and easily. From tweaking grip power and speed, to selecting and ranking the different patterns, it is possible to set up the prosthetic hand to meet the exact desired requirements. Working alongside a clinician, bebalance can also be used as a training aid to assess and develop the patient’s ability to use the device. The clinician will be able to modify the operating thresholds and change signalling features, to ensure that the hand fits the patient’s needs. The software is also available for free download.
The bebionic3 prosthetic hand has been designed to look as real as possible, with a rounded shape and profile that gives the hand a natural appearance, especially when covered with one of the available lifelike silicone skins. Soft and durable, these gloves are easy to remove and clean.
They are available in 19 different lifelike colour shades, but additional detailing on the palms, knuckles, nails and joints can be added in order to enhance the natural appearance of the hand.
When we created bebionic, we wanted to […] transform the lives of amputees worldwide, and help them to regain independence and control in their everyday lives.
