Prosthetic Fingers for Partial Hand Amputees
i-limb digits™ is a state-of-the-art prosthesis for partial hand amputees that is:
- Custom-made for each patient and has fully articulated digits that bend, grip and point, so it closely resembles the function of a natural hand
- A myoelectric device, which means it uses signals from the body to control functions
Eligibility for i-limb digits
i-limb digits is designed for patients who’ve lost between one and five fingers. We’ll do a comprehensive assessment to determine the best solution for you.
Advantages of i-limb digits
- Partial hand amputees can regain the dexterity and confidence to once again perform everyday tasks.
- Each prosthetic finger is powered by its own motor, so patients can more easily control movement for typing, using a telephone, pointing and more.
- The i-limb digits prosthesis can be covered with LIVINGSKIN™, a silicone coating that is made to closely resemble your existing hand.
