Nine years ago, Dennis Aabo Sørensen severely wounded his left arm in a fireworks accident, and had to have it amputated. Now, a bionic hand has restored his ability to feel, the first time this has been reported in a scientific journal.

I read about him. I think I'd want a prosthetic hand that can feel, rather than metal hook on the end of my arm. However, I understand 'beggars can't be choosers' especially where Obamacare is concerned. Be that as it may, I am extremely HAPPY for this man :)

Thnx so much for posting Freya!!
