LYON, France, June 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

i-limb quantum introduces ground-breaking new standard for myoelectric prosthetic hands 

Touch Bionics, a provider of world-leading prosthetic technologies, today announced a significant addition to the company's i-limb™ range of bionic hands at the International Society of Prosthetics & Orthotics (ISPO) World Congress taking place in Lyon, France. The i-limb quantum incorporates the company's patented i-mo™ technology and is the first upper limb prosthesis that can change grips with a simple gesture.

"We are pleased to introduce the i-limb quantum at the ISPO Congress," said Ian Stevens, CEO of Touch Bionics. "The new hand combines unsurpassed functionality with design style. It is smarter, faster, stronger and smaller than any of its predecessors. i-limb wearers can quickly utilise the many grips available through the activation of gesture control using
i-mo technology embedded in every i-limb quantum."

"The i-limb quantum is the most advanced prosthesis available for individuals affected by limb differences," said Rebekah Marine, i-limb wearer. "I particularly appreciate the ability to almost effortlessly choose different grips using subtle but distinct gestures. The new extra small size will appeal in particular to female users and children."

i-limb quantum - key enhancements: 

  • Smarter - i-mo technology uses simple gestures to change grips
  • Faster - boost digit speed by up to 30%
  • Stronger - up to 30% more power when needed
  • Smaller - anatomical styling now available in 3 sizes

Touch Bionics is located at stand B06. Live product demonstrations with i-limb users and staff experts will be held throughout the ISPO exhibit hours.
