Student gets bionic hand (video)

Posted on Saturday, January 24 2009 @ 05:25:19 CET by


Telegraph brings the story of Evan Reynolds, a 19 year old student who was the second person in Britain to be fitted with the i-LIMB hand:
The firm was still working on a prototype at the time, but after a number of tests and meetings with prosthetic specialists, Mr Reynolds had the i-LIMB fitted in February last year.

He said: "The most amazing thing about it was how quickly I adapted to it. People always ask how it's changed my life, but there's no specific thing.

"It's the hundreds of everyday things you take for granted, which I can do again, like peeling a potato, catching a ball, holding a bottle of water.

"I'm incredibly grateful."

He added: "It's so sensitive I can grip a bottle of water or a paper cup without crushing it, and even swing a racket. All I have to so is imagine picking something up or gripping it and the fingers and thumb move automatically."
