A father who lost his arm in an accident six years ago has been given a new lease on life by a hi-tech bionic hand which is so precise he can type again. Nigel Ackland, 53, has been fitted with the Terminator-like carbon fiber mechanical hand which he can control with movements in his upper arm. The new bebionic3 myoelectric hand, which is also made from aluminum and alloy knuckles, moves like a real human limb by responding to Nigel’s muscle twitches.

If “buying American” and “American Manufacturing” is a trend, we’re in trouble, but you all know that already. The Made In America Movement is all too aware that America has to turn the trend into a perpetual affair, “A single voice can plant a seed. 100,000 voices will demand attention. A million voices will affect change.” The organization believes in the strength and propulsion of a collective initiative and echoes Margaret Mead. #USA #manufacturing

The bebionic3 hand

In 2007, Touch Bionics launched the i-LIMB Hand, the first powered prosthetic hand to incorporate articulating fingers. It has five independently powered digits that open and close around objects in a more natural and anatomically correct way than any previous hand prosthesis. The i-LIMB Hand helped amputees across the world to improve their everyday lives with the increased function offered by its articulating digits.
