Smart Control

High / Low


i-Limb Wrist

The first integrated hand and wrist prosthesis with synchronized rotation and grip selection.

When the prosthesis is held horizontally and a grip is activated using any of the control options of the i-Limb Access hand, the i-Limb Wrist will automatically rotate to the predefined rotation for that grip.

The i-Limb Wrist offers simultaneous rotation and direct rotational control.

Simultaneous rotation - when accessing a grip through any control option on the i-Limb Access hand the i-Limb Wrist will automatically and simultaneously rotate to the pre-set rotation for that grip.

Direct rotation – the wrist can be directly rotated without changing grip, using SMART control.

SMART control is calibrated during set up of the prosthesis to the individual users unique muscle activities. Traditional control methods of co-contraction or high/low are also available.

Key Features:

  • Set up and calibration via Biosim on iPad.
  • 2 way communication between i-Limb Access and i-Limb Wrist allows simultaneous rotation upon grip selection.
  • Expansion ring for assembly and disassembly into prosthesis.
  • Utilises digital electrodes for optimal control.
  • 50/60Hz switchable via Biosim and My i-Limb App.
  • 2 year warranty.

Gesture Control

i-Mo Technology enables an automated grip to be accessed by moving the i-Limb Quantum in one of four directions. The 4 chosen grips can be easily changed via the mobile app.

Muscle Control

Triggers are specific muscle signals that are used to instruct the i-Limb and i-Digits to activate a specific grip.

App Control

Quick Grips provide instant access to various pre-programmed and custom My Grips, allowing huge versatility and flexibility in customizing the hands for a variety of daily activities. Use Quick Grips with a number of mobile devices, including the Apple Watch.

Proximity Control

Grip Chips are small Bluetooth enabled devices that allow users to enter any available grips, simply by moving their i-Limb Access device close to an object where a grip chip is placed.
