Those who have tested the BeBionic hand say they would not switch it for anything.

The company Steeper developed an artificial hand BeBionic, referred to by some as Terminator hand, which is the most precisely anatomically designed hand yet according to their data and the closest to a human hand as far as movement goes. For 29-year-old Nicky Ashwell, who was born without a hand, the small BeBionic made it possible for her to ride a bike for the first time, excercise with weights using both hand and similar things we take for granted.

It functions with the help of sensors that detect muscle movement. Microprocessors process the obtained information and give instruction, which move to make and which motor to power. The hand enables 14 different grip types.

The bionic hand small BeBionic is composed of 337 mechanic parts that mimic the natural movement of a human hand. In the production of BeBionic Formula 1 technolgy was used. The hand weighs 390 grams and can carry a load of up to 45 kg.

The price of the small BeBionic that was in development for 7 years is 11 thousand dollars. Those who have tested the hand say that it has become an intricate part of their everyday life and that they wouldn't change it for anything.
