IEEE Computer Society San Diego Chapter's Invited Seminar Series 2024 - Lecture 6

PSYONIC develops advanced bionic limbs that are accessible for humans and robots. Their first product, the Ability Hand, is an FDA-registered multiarticulated bionic hand that is the fastest on the market, robust to impacts, and gives users touch feedback. It is also covered by Medicare in the US. As a robotic manipulator, it is currently in use by NASA, Meta, Apptronik, Mercedes-Benz, and some of the top automakers, manufacturers, and brain-mother interface companies globally. This talk will detail the development of the Ability Hand, its current capabilities, and further advancements in bionic limbs that will be coming in the near future.
