True Bionic Hand Hits Market

Awesome:

The thumb and fingers can move and grip just like a human hand and are controlled by the patient's mind and muscles.

...

The technology has been tested by a number of people, including US soldiers who lost limbs in the Iraq war.

Mr Gow, who is the director of rehabilitation engineering services at NHS Lothian, told the BBC's Good Morning Scotland programme: "It's the first hand to come to the market that's actually had bending fingers just like your own hand."

...

Juan Arredondo, from Texas, who lost his hand in Iraq in 2004, has also been fitted with one of the hands.

"Every day I have the hand, it surprises me," he said.

"Now I can pick up a Styrofoam cup without crushing it. With my other hand, I would really have to concentrate on how much pressure I was putting on the cup."
