A perfect interplay of numerous nerves, tendons, muscles and bones makes the hand a unique, natural precision instrument. Modelling as many of its numerous functions as possible in a prosthesis is one of the greatest challenges for medical technology. The Michelangelo Hand and the Axon-Bus system are milestones on the path to perfection. With many degrees of freedom, they restore numerous functions of the natural model for the user.
