The Ability Hand™ is a multi-articulated prosthesis that is robust, lightweight, offers touch feedback, and is the fastest operating hand on the market.
Our hand is built such that it will work with most third-party EMG pattern recognition, EMG direct control, linear transducers, or Force Sensitive Resistors can be used to control the hand. Prosthetists will work with their patients to determine which system is best to integrate with the Ability Hand™. Each hand is equipped with patent-pending high-performance motors, compliant finger joint technology, a 7.4V 2200mAh battery pack, bluetooth connectivity, and sensory touch feedback. The hand will also be compatible with third-party wrist rotators and elbows.

WHO CAN PROVIDE THE Ability Hand™?
The Ability Hand™ needs to be prescribed by a physician and may only be delivered to a patient by a certified prosthetist, one who has received PSYONIC product training. PSYONIC deploys a team to educate prosthetists and technicians on the fabrication, fitting, delivery, and follow-up of the Ability Hand™. This includes a combination of in-person training and online webinars. We can also provide on-site assistance for the more challenging fittings, which could double as the necessary practitioner training for future fittings.
Every Ability Hand™ includes a two-year limited warranty. Each Ability Hand™ is registered under our limited warranty by a prosthetist as part of the fitting process.
The warranty period begins once the Ability Hand™ is delivered to the user by a prosthetist for use outside of fitting sessions with a prosthetist. In the case of a hand requiring manufacturer repair, a loaner Ability Hand™ will be provided for use to the user for the duration of the repair. Repair costs are covered by PSYONIC, except for costs associated with damages resulting from improper use, as outlined in the user manual.
A prosthetist needs to purchase the following, depending on the input system (Direct Control, Linear Transducer, FSR, Pattern Recognition Software- Coapt or IBT) chosen per patient/user:
1. Coupling Piece (Ottobock 10S4 or Steeper QDACP)
2. Lamination Ring (Ottobock 10S1=40/45/50/54 or Steeper QDALR 40/45/50/54)
3. Electrodes (any standard ones should work, such as Ottobock, Steeper, and MotionControl)
4. Electrode Cables
