Touch Bionics announced that its ProDigits solution has won a Best of What’s New Award for 2010 from Popular Science.
Touch Bionics extended the technology behind the i-LIMB Hand to create a solution for partial-hand patients — an estimated 1.2 million people worldwide.
“We are honored to be recognized with a Best of What’s New Award from a world-leading publication like Popular Science,” Stuart Mead, Touch Bionics’ chief executive officer, stated in a press release.
Each year, the editors of Popular Science name the top 100 tech innovations of the year; breakthrough products and technologies that represent a significant leap in their categories. The winners — the Best of What’s New — are awarded inclusion in the December issue of Popular Science.
“For 23 years, Popular Science has honored the innovations that surprise and amaze us – those that make a positive impact on our world today and challenge our views of what’s possible in the future,” Mark Jannot, editor in chief of Popular Science, stated. “The Best of What’s New Award is the magazine’s top honor, and the 100 winners – chosen from among thousands of entrants – represent the highest level of achievement in their fields.”
