Inventors have integrated radio frequency identification into a prosthetic hand to help control movement. The wearer of the device, called the Morph, can swipe a set of RDIF-programmed computer chips to position the hand and fingers for several different tasks, including holding a cup and pointing a finger. The hand remains in that position until another chip is swiped. The Morph, created by Infinite Biomedical Technologies, recently received FDA approval.
