Bionic model Rebekah Marine inspires with prosthetic arm
« on: February 23, 2016, 06:54:51 AM »

This is what our youngest daughter was born with except it was her left arm.  I emailed her the link last night and she thought it was pretty awesome.  I wonder if insurance will ever pay for something like this?  I'm sure eventually prices will come down as the technology advances.

She's pretty cute and I'm glad to see that she has been given this technology.

I'm guessing our buddy Fuzz could come up with a grip exercise regime  ;D ;D

All I can imagine is a possible electrical short circuit and that grip suddenly goes from 'firm' to vice grip or metal shear strength :o :o :o

Well, just so happens I do......but I think I'd have to really study up on what was used for calibration from the impulses, and would it crush a grape if it went haywire.

LOL, one of my favorite episodes from Big Bang Theory was when Howard used a robotic hand that got "clamped" up on him and required a hospital visit.
