Existing prosthetic hands with articulated movements had not been able to provide any tactile sensation, so users often crushed or smashed objects when trying to manipulate them.
On the other hand, the bionic hand is equipped with sensors capable of reacting to the tension of the artificial tendons, transforming the information emitted when a patient manipulates an object into electrical impulses.
The electrical signals, converted into the equivalent of natural nerve impulses, are transmitted to four electrodes implanted in the peripheral nerves of the stump.
