Myoelectric (Muscle Signal) controlled electronic prostheses. Signals detected by myoelectric sensors placed in the socket are processed in the electronic circuit. The data processed in the circuit moves the electronic motor which provides hand movement. In this way, the patient; provides true limb-like control when using the prosthesis.
It is very similar to the classical myoelectric arm prosthesis technology. In fact, the structure that provides the communication between the body and the prosthesis is the same. However, the major features that distinguish bionic hand prostheses are; 5 fingers that can move independently of each other, resistance sensitivity, variable speed and power, the use of touch-screen and modes that mimic many complicated hand joint movements.
