The art and technology behind prosthetic innovations are becoming more and more advanced as the Touch Bionic 'ProDigits' proves. A super sensitive set of robotic fingers, it gives people without hands the dexterity they have been dreaming of.

The Touch Bionic 'ProDigits' can replace any or all of the lost fingers and is controlled by a computer chip in the prosthesis. The cost for such accuracy, however, is between $60,000 to $75,000. That does, however, include the fitting and occupational therapy to adjust to the new hand and fingers.
