DR GRAHAM WHITELEY trained as a Design Engineer. He is a robotics designer and inventor. Graham devises new concepts and realises them using state of the art mechanical and electrical engineering. Graham helped design the world's first five-fingered prosthetic hand which is now worn by thousands of people, making their everyday quality of life that little bit better. The hand won the Da Vinci award and was named one of the top inventions of 2008 by Time Magazine. He has also designed the Schunk SVH, the world's first serially produced anthropomorphic robot hand."Remarkable.
