bebionic small hand opposed white (2)

When Steeper required intricate prototype and production components for a miniaturised version of their bebionic prosthetic hand they turned to RP Technologies for their wide ranging expertise, flexible engi-neering solutions and no limits approach.

Prosthetic experts Steeper wanted to produce a myoelectric prosthetic hand that could trans-form the lives of amputees worldwide and help them to regain independence and control in their everyday lives. They developed the bebi-onic which is modelled on an accurate skeletal structure and is constructed from an array of components designed to provide the most true to life movements. The hand marks a turning point in the world of prosthetics as it perfectly mimics the functions of a real hand via 14 dif-ferent precision grips which enable amputees to engage in a range of activities that would have previously been complex and unmanageable.

RP Technologies

RP Technologies are the UK’s leading manufacturer of injection moulded prototype and production components. Their service prides itself on the fast turnaround of complex aluminium prototype tooling, plastic injection moulded and CNC machined components from their UK based manufacturing facilities in the West Midlands.
