Bionic Hand or bebeionic Hand Ottobock: From performing simple tasks like tying shoes to regaining control and self-esteem.
Everything you need to know about the features and benefits of the BeBionic myoelectric hand EQD: Hand prosthesis from Ottobock need to know.
Overall, the bebionic hand is the most advanced myoelectric hand on the market, offering users a new level of independence and mobility. With 14 different grip patterns and the ability to apply up to 100N of force, the bebionic hand allows users to perform a variety of tasks with ease and precision.
The bionic hand is equipped with 14 selectable grip types and hand positions that allow the user to easily perform everyday activities such as taking meals, carrying bags, opening doors, turning on lights and typing. The hand is also equipped with a built-in computer that allows the user to control the movements of the hand with a thought. The bionic hand is powered by a battery that allows up to 8 hours of continuous use.
Opposed thumb grips (the thumb faces the palm) Three-finger grip The index finger and middle finger are closed simultaneously with the thumb until the three fingers touch. The ring finger and little finger continue to be closed until they meet resistance or the close signal is interrupted. For this grip, the thumb position must be adjusted so that the grip can be performed accurately. Examples of use: This grip can be used to grasp and hold objects (e.g., pens, coins).

One of the advantages of the bebionic Ottobock hand is that it can be easily positioned in a variety of positions. This is thanks to the fact that the thumb can be rotated manually. In most cases, this is not a major disadvantage. In fact, it often requires some preparation for myoelectric hands, such as choosing a suitable grip. In most cases, however, users will intuitively rotate the thumb of the bionic hand with the free hand in the correct position.
One of the advantages of the bebionic hand is that it can be easily placed in different positions. This is thanks to the thumb, which can be rotated manually. In most cases, this is not a major disadvantage. In fact, it often requires some preparation for myoelectric hands, such as choosing a suitable grip. However, in most cases, users will intuitively use the thumb of the bionic hand with your free hand to rotate it to the correct position.
Proportional speed control allows users to regulate the speed and force of the grip of a bionic hand.
Controlling speed is an essential part of bionics.
Pressure sensors in the fingertips of the Ability Hand provide feedback to the user through vibrations in the stump, allowing them to adjust their grip strength. The bebionic hand is a much slower and soft closing hand that allows the user to pick up something fragile like an egg.
When the bionic hand senses that an object is slipping away from it, it automatically increases its grip force. This is similar to the way some microprocessor knees detect a stumble and automatically adjust to avoid a fall.
The bebionic offers three options for the wrist:
The bebionic is available in two sizes: The bebionic Germany is available in the following bebionic sizes:
Stroke capacity and handle strength
The bebionic hand can lift up to 45 kilograms. Individual fingers can lift 25 kilograms, and the knuckles of the hand can support up to 90 kilograms when pushing off from a seated position. See the bebionic hand manual for more details.
Only the i-Limb Quantum with titanium fingers offers a higher lifting capacity of 90 kg.
There can always be broken fingers with bionic hands. This is a known problem throughout the industry and everyone is working flat out on these problems.
Direct contact with water or situations where dirt and dust are prevalent should be avoided as these can affect or damage the performance of the hand.
There is a cosmetic glove in eight variations in skin tones or jet black for a high-tech look.
The battery should be charged daily at night. Even with intensive use, the battery will then last 24 hours.
The bebionic costs between $30,000 and $40,000 and is normal for a typical forearm solution, including all orthotist costs.
The bebionic Hand is particularly suitable for users who have intact muscle activity in the arm stump. The bebionic Hand is ideal for light to moderately active users.
The battery life of the prosthesis depends on everyday use. On average, the battery lasts one day. To ensure that the prosthesis is always ready for use, you should charge the battery every day. The battery of your prosthesis lasts approximately one full day. It is advisable to charge it every evening so that you do not get a nasty surprise in the morning.
For daily use, it is recommended to wear the bebionic hand with a prosthetic glove. This protects the hand from moisture, dirt and dust.
No, you must not shower or bathe with the bebionic hand. However, there are standard prosthetic components for hand washing that are adapted by your orthopaedic technician. The bebionic Hand is not waterproof and should therefore not come into contact with water. However, you can use a glove to facilitate hand washing.
