When we created bebionic, we
set out to design a prosthetic hand
that could transform the lives of
amputees worldwide, and help them
regain a new level of independence
bebionic3 is the culmination of many
years of development and is the
most lifelike, functional, affordable
and easy-to-use, commercially
available bionic hand.
We worked closely with amputees
at every stage of development and
testing, taking their input to design
bebionic3 to work effectively in real
bebionic3 utilizes leading-edge
technology and unique, ergonomic
features that make it unlike any other
Its sleek, innovative design and
advanced construction materials
make bebionic3 strong enough to
stand up to the wear and tear of
These innovations combine to
give the hand unrivalled versatility,
functionality and performance.
selectable thumb positions and a built-in sensor enable users to complete more tasks than ever before.
innovative palm design protects bebionic3 from impact damage, and makes the hand quieter than ever.
foldaway fingers provide natural looking movement, and flex when brushing past people or bumping into objects.
individual motors controlling each finger allow the hand to move and grip in a natural, coordinated way. The motors are positioned to optimize weight distribution - making the hand feel lighter and more comfortable.
powerful microprocessors continuously monitor the position of each finger, giving precise, reliable control over hand movements.
soft finger pads and a wide thumb profile maximizes the surface area, and enhances grip.
durable construction and advanced
materials make bebionic3 strong enough to handle up to 99lb (45kg) – so users can confidently carry heavy objects.
several wrist options including wrists offering flexible wrist movement, manual rotation or the option to integrate with a powered wrist rotator.
With 14 reliable grip patterns
and hand positions, bebionic3 is
designed to handle almost anything
users need to do in a typical day.
From key grip, for holding thin, flat
objects like plates, credit cards, or
keys, to active index, exclusive to
bebionic3, the only prosthetic hand
that enables operation of home
and garden appliances with trigger
mechanisms, like hand held sprays,
hairdryers and power tools.
Whether shaking hands, using home and garden tools or eating a piece of fruit, bebionic3’s flexible power grip provides just the right amount of grip to suit any situation.
For working in the office, browsing the internet, or playing video games at home, the mouse grip is ideal, and completely unique to bebionic3, making it the only prosthetic hand designed to operate a computer mouse.
bebionic3 has been designed to look as real as possible, with a rounded shape and profile that gives the hand a natural appearance, especially when covered with one of our life-like silicone skins.
Crafted using multiple layers of advanced silicone material, the skins are constructed with an integrated reinforcing mesh that makes them soft and durable, while being both easy to remove and clean.
Available in 19 different life-like skin shades, with unique TrueFinish™ micro-pigmentation that makes the glove look as authentic as possible. Additional detailing on the palms, knuckles, nails and joints enhances the natural appearance of the hand. The gloves are also available in jet black for a more futuristic appearance.
bebionic3 can be programmed wirelessly, to optimize performance for each individual, using smart electronics and our easy-to-use bebalance software.
With bebalance, you can customize bebionic3 quickly and easily. From selecting and ranking the different grip patterns, to adjusting the electrode operation, it is possible to set up your prosthetic hand to meet your exact requirements.
With on-screen animation, you can also use bebalance as a training aid to assess and develop the user’s ability to use the bebionic3 hand.
We also provide a full range of additional components designed to complete the bebionic3 prosthetic hand system.
Batteries – three different battery options are available, each designed to provide optimum performance for bebionic3. The options available are a single 2200mAh single cell battery, alongside 2200mAh or 1300mAh in split cell configurations.
Wrist options – bebionic3 hands come ready supplied with one of three wrist options, to suit individual requirements. Options available include an EQD (electric quick disconnect) Wrist, a Short Wrist to accommodate a long residual limb / wrist disarticulation and a Multi-Flex Wrist offering natural passive wrist movement.
Electrodes and cables – we supply a selection of suitable electrodes and cables, in a range of lengths and filters. If required, we can also provide a range of switches and force sensitive resistors (FSRs), which can be used to control bebionic3.
