Medical breakthroughs. Dennis Aabo Sørensen is the first amputee in the world to feel sensory information with a bionic hand. He has recovered the sense of touch and can identify the shape and texture of objects.
This is a biomedical discovery that opens the way for prothesis that restore the function of the members. Swiss, German and Italian researchers tested this bionic hand at the Gemelli hospital in Rome, Italy, in this Danish patient (36 years old), who was amputated left arm 9 years ago, after an explosion occurred at home while handling fireworks.
He participated in the clinical study for one month in early 2013. The results are published in Science Translational Medecine.
These are fantastic news!
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
