A Fully Functioning Bionic Hand Implanted on 24 year old

Patrick,a 24-year-old Austrian,decided to have his dysfunctional hand amputated and replaced with a bionic hand. He lost the use of his left hand after being electrocuted at work. Here he demonstrates the extra movement his new bionic hand has given him,opening a bottle and tying his shoelaces,and tests a prototype hand wich will give him additional wrist movement....

Multiple signals can be read simultaneously, enabling the patient to twist and flex their wrist back and forward, again using the same brain signals that would have powered similar movement in the real hand.
