Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET) presented at the BioTechMed forum a line of SmartLi modular bionic prostheses designed for both adults and children. To configure their functions, a special cross-platform application is used that runs on computers and mobile phones running various operating systems. The design of the artificial fingers makes it possible to perform various grips of objects with controlled force. The sensory feedback system with tactile response facilitates the process of user interaction with the prosthesis.
"Today, modular bionic prostheses are one of the most advanced types of hand prosthetics, allowing to raise rehabilitation to a qualitatively new level. The development of KRET specialists helps not only to restore the functions of missing limbs but also to undergo adaptation in the most gentle way. The capability to adjust the prosthesis via a mobile app or computer and a wide range of movement patterns make life for people with disabilities as complete and comfortable as possible," said Alexander Nazarov, Deputy CEO of Rostec.
As part of the Children of War charity project, launched last year by Russia Today TV channel with the support of Doctor Liza Charitable Foundation named after Elizaveta Glinka, teenagers from the Donetsk People's Republic received modular prosthetic hands.
