According to a recent report, a new AI powered prosthetic hand has actually been established that enables an individual to move it with one’s mind. The current development operates in sync with an amputee’s brain waves and muscle signals to reproduce the motion that a person would’ve made with a real hand.

BrainCo revealed the last model of its prosthetic hand– which was called among Time Publication’s leading 100 developments of 2019– at CES 2020. The business anticipates having a hand on the marketplace in the United States later this year.

So far, there are 2 million amputees in the United States. The majority of prosthetic hands on the marketplace fall under two classifications: Metal hooks with restricted performance, or robotic prosthetics that count on physical buttons or shaking the prosthetic to change in between predefined gestures.

Max Newlon, president of BrainCo USA, told CNET.

According to the source, BrainCo USA President said,

We came up with a new way to understand electrical signals coming from the brain, going into the residual limb of the amputee, and detecting the intention of the user

Supposedly, it takes almost 5 to 10 minutes to configure 6 gestures into the prosthetic hand, which obviously improves and more lifelike the more one moves the hand. Moreover, Another advantage of the new AI powered prosthetic hand is the expense. Normal robotic prosthetic limbs can be priced around $60,000 (approximately 416,526 Yuan). Nevertheless, the BrainCo’s new prosthetic hand could be priced in between $10,000 to $15,000 (approximately 70,000 to 100,000 Yuan).

Left and right hand are anticipated to be offered later on this year. The business is developing smaller sized prosthetic hands for kids.

For now, the AI powered prosthetic hand is waiting for the FDA approval process. Once the company gets approval, it will start to sell the product officially worldwide.
