Bionic arm enables amputees to feel again

The invention links electrodes implanted in the arms with a robotic hand with sensors on the fingers.

A scientific breakthrough has been made in Italy. In tests, a man has been able to feel using an artificial limb, a first in bionic medicine.

After the success of the pilot project, researchers are now working on a lighter model that’s more likely to become commercially viable.
