Amputee Feels in Real-Time with Bionic Hand thanks to researchers from NEBIAS.

Published in the February 5, 2014 issue of Science Translational Medicine, the results show that Dennis Aabo Sørensen is the first amputee in the world to feel sensory rich information – in realtime – with a prosthetic hand wired to nerves in his upper arm. Sørensen could grasp objects intuitively and identify what he was touching while blindfolded.
