New hand with feelings - level 2
A Danish man who lost his hand in a fireworks accident is able to feel again thanks to his new prosthetic hand.
There are several sensors on each finger of the hand. The sensors measure the level of force when the patient grasps something. This force information is then delivered to different sensory nerves in the patient’s upper arm.
The first time when the Danish man used his hand, it was amazing! He could feel things that he hadn’t been able to for nine years. He can feel round, hard and soft things. He is the first man in the world to regain sensory feeling in a false limb.
Difficult words: prosthetic (man-made), several (few), grasp (take and hold something), false limb (an arm or leg made by people to replace a missing arm or leg).
