PHILADELPHIA (May 3, 2013)--Double hand amputee Jason Koger, 34, went to Philadelphia to demonstrate the i-limb ultra revolution app, which allows him to program his bionic hand.
The married father of three from Owensboro, Ky., lost his hands five years ago in an all-terrain vehicle accident.
With his previous bionic hand, Koger says he had to visit a prosthetic office in Texas so a clinician could program different grips and if the grips weren't right, he'd have to fly back.
Now, Koger can use a stylus and an iPhone app to pick from 24 types of grips.
The technology from the British firm Touch Bionics indicates how rapidly the field of prosthetics is changing.
