NEBIAS: The world’s most advanced bionic hand

The world’s most advanced bionic hand, providing a sense of touch acute enough to handle an egg, has been completed after 10 years of EU-funded research.

Researchers have created a new neural interface to provide sensory information from an artificial hand to the brain. This interface is able to link the patient’s nervous system with the artificial sensors, embedded in the prosthesis, enabling the user to control complex hand and finger movements.
