ADVANCES IN RESPONSIVENESS AND GRIP SPEED OF TERMINAL DEVICES BOOST THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW UNIQUE CONTROL OPTIONS
Repository Usage Stats
The SensorHand Speed, which was introduced last year, has set a new standard in grip speed and responsiveness. To achieve this goal, the hand received a new high performance drive unit, reinforced mechanical parts and new electronics. The biggest task within the development process was the adaptation of current control strategies and the development of new control options, thus enabling the patient to handle the high speed and the unique acceleration of the new hand. Besides the DMC plus®, AutoControl and VarioControl options the SensorHand Speed offers a new control called VarioDual. VarioDual uses two signal sites and mimics the physiological activities used to control the sound hand. VarioDual combines the two classic control strategies EVO (Electronic Voluntary Opening) and DMC (Dynamic Mode Control). The overwhelming echo from patients all over the world led to the development of a new Electric Greifer with control options similar to the SensorHand Speed.
