Researchers are one step closer to creating a prosthetic hand that allows user to have full control over each finger, according to a new report from Georgia Tech.
Researchers at the university say they have created an ultrasonic sensor which allows amputees to control individual fingers on a prosthetic hand, with enough sensitivity to play the piano, according to the report.
“Our prosthetic arm is powered by ultrasound signals. By using this new technology, the arm can detect which fingers an amputee wants to move, even if they don’t have fingers,” project lead and Georgia Tech College of Design professor Gil Weinberg said, according to a press release.
