Girl,15,is youngest to receive bionic fingers

Recommended Posts

A 15-year-old girl has become the youngest person in Europe to be fitted with bionic fingers.

Chloe Holmes lost all her fingers to septicaemia as a toddler and has never been able to pick things up for herself.

But her parents have now forked out £38,000 for a full set of bionic left digits which are controlled by electronic signals from the nerve endings in her hand.

Chloe is now learning basic tasks such as cleaning her teeth and using a knife and fork for the first time.

She said: ''Growing up has been really difficult. I can't play sports or anything and I can't hold things.

''The best thing about my new hand is that now I can hold things. It is quite difficult, but I am getting used to it.

Some day, these things will be better than a real hand. I could see a bunch of people choose to be "augmented" in the future.

Awesome. My son manages a company in this field - prosthetics, and some of the technology that's coming up will make your jaw drop.

Well, the smiley makes the question look facetious, but I was referring to the advanced robotics of prosthetics. Nerve/hardware interfaces.

Just make sure not to allow wifi connectivity, that could be a bad thing and lead to unnecessary zaniness and miscellaneous hijinx. :lol:

On second thought, add wifi connectivity! :tu:

"Quit hittin' yourself, quit hittin' yourself!" lol...sorry, I'm done now.
