Article focuses on the Southampton Remedi-Hand, which is a motorized prosthetic hand created by researchers at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom. The prototype Remedi-Hand uses six sets of motors and gears so that each of the five fingers can move independently. The design is very light, as it weighs 400 grams less than the average human hand. The developers contend that the next stage of the project will be to integrate sensor technology that would sense how strongly the hand is gripping an object, which could go a long way in terms of preventing drops.
