ONLINE COVER The Hannes Hand. Developing prostheses with improved functionality and better embodiment may reduce the abandonment rate of these devices. Laffranchi et al. report a bioinspired prosthetic upper limb system, called Hannes, that exhibits key properties of the human hand: accurate anthropomorphism, biomimetic performance, and human-like grasping behavior. Pilot clinical trials involving amputees showed that Hannes performed better than existing devices. This month's cover is a photograph of the Hannes hand prosthesis (see also the Focus by Nazarpour).
