It is no secret that prosthetic arms can make life a lot easier for amputees. The LUKE Prosthetic Arm is not your average prosthesis though. It is designed to offer superior flexibility and strength. It features a powered shoulder that can reach overhead and behind the back. The elbow is strong enough to lift a bag of groceries. The hand has 4 independent motors.

This prosthetic arm gives you multiple ways to control it (e.g. EMG electrodes and foot-mounted inertial sensors). It also offers protection against water and dust. Mobius Bionics is bringing it to the market beginning late 2016.
