This is one of the best videos I have seen in a long time and when the surgical procedure done adds real “feelings” it doesn’t get much better than that.  The video shows several patients working with different models of arms.  Immediately you have to think of soldiers who return from war that are injured having such a need. 

This is where life meets the machine.  BD
