06, September 2012
The official world launch of the all NEW bebionic3 hand takes place at the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association 2012 National Assembly, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston from 6th to 9th September 2012.
The innovative new hand offers significant improvements over the existing bebionic, including a revolutionary new design, and advanced new materials that make it more durable, whilst improving the grip, strength and accuracy. In addition, the hand features significant aesthetic improvements, smart electronics, and all new software that enhances both functionality and ease of use.
RSLSteeper anticipates that the launch of this third generation of bebionic hand will prove very popular with clinicians and end users in markets worldwide.
Paul Steeper, Managing Director of RSLSteeper Products Division, said:
“bebionic3 is the culmination of many years of development, and has the potential to revolutionise the lives of amputees from across the world. We have been able to make significant improvements to a design that was already the world’s most advanced myo-electric hand, making it stronger, more precise and easier to programme.
“The new hand has been designed to help amputees to tackle real-life, everyday situations, and provides the perfect balance between advanced technology, functionality and aesthetics.”
bebionic3 features naturally compliant grip patterns and a lifelike appearance. The hand also features customisable grip speed, patterns and strength that can be wirelessly programmed and tailored to suit each individual user’s requirements, via the all-new bebalance software.
