The Cyberhand Project

The CYBERHAND project, funded by the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) arm of the IST Programme, aimed at exploring cutting-edge theories and solutions in the fields of neuroscience and robotics, in order to develop a cybernetic prosthetic hand.
The main result of the CYBERHAND project was the development of a new kind of hand prosthesis (i.e., a "cybernetic prosthesis") able to re-create the natural link which exists between the hand and the Central Nervous System (CNS). The Demonstrator can be considered the first tangible result towards the implementation of a "bionic hand" completely interchangeable with the natural one.
