FIU’s Neural-Enabled Prosthetic Hand System Restores Sensation to First Human Subject

Years after his hand was amputated in a traumatic accident, a hand amputee can “feel” again, thanks to technology Florida International University (FIU) engineers have developed. That person – the first person with a hand amputation who has been fitted with a neural-enabled prosthetic hand (NEPH) system that has a fully implanted, wirelessly controlled neurostimulator – has been using it at home for almost four months. The results are promising to researchers who hope to restore “feeling” to people with upper limb amputation. ..
