Bionic fingers unveiled by scientists

9th December 2009

A Scottish company has unveiled what it says are the world’s first bionic fingers which they hope will transform the lives of people with missing digits.

The motor-powered ProDigits have been developed by Touch Bionics from Livingston, West Lothian, the company which made the bionic i-Limb hand. The unit – which can bend, touch, pick up and point - fits over the person’s palm to help people with missing digits. More than 50,000 people in Europe are believed to be partial hand amputees.
