Female-Friendly Prosthetics

These Bebionic Hands Are Designed For Women and Teens

— June 29, 2015 — Lifestyle
This line of prosthetic bebionic hands is the very first advanced myoelectric hand built and designed specifically to fit women and teenagers. The prosthetic senses users' muscle movements and uses them to trigger individual motors in each finger.

The first person to have been fitted with these advanced bebionic hands is British woman Nicky Ashwell. A 29-year-old congenital amputee, Ashwell was born without a right hand. Since wearing the bebionic hand, she has been able to enjoy simple but significant conveniences and pleasures such as "being able to carry my purse while holding my boyfriend's hand."

Ashwell says she has also been able to do things she could never have done before, such as riding a bike and lifting weights. That itself goes to show the power these bebionic hands have in them to help alter and transform the lives of female and teenage amputees.

Trend Themes
1. Female-friendly Prosthetics - The advancement in creating prosthetic limbs with a gender-specific design and personalized fit presents an opportunity for manufacturers to focus on creating more comfortable and customized experiences for female amputees.
2. Myoelectric Technology - The development of myoelectric technology in prosthetics allows for the creation of highly responsive and advanced prosthetic limbs, creating an opportunity for manufacturers to expand the capabilities and functionalities of prosthetics for users.
3. Personalized Healthcare Technology - The integration of personalized healthcare technology in prosthetic design, such as the use of muscle sensors and pattern recognition technology, presents an opportunity for healthcare providers to offer more tailored and precise prosthetic solutions to patients.
Industry Implications
1. Medical Devices - The advancements in prosthetic technology create a disruptive innovation opportunity in the medical device industry, as manufacturers can leverage emerging technologies and focus on personalized and gender-specific design to offer more effective and efficient solutions to patients.
2. Sports and Fitness - The advanced technological capabilities of myoelectric prosthetics can benefit and disrupt the sports and fitness industry, as athletes with amputations can leverage prosthetics to increase their capabilities and performance levels.
3. Consumer Goods - The rise of consumer demand for personalized and gender-specific products presents an opportunity for companies in the consumer goods industry to expand into the prosthetics market, by creating customized and design-focused solutions for female and teenage amputees.
