One Hand Holding the Other

a href=http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/12/health/bionic-hands/index.html?hpt=hp_t1This article/a by Danielle Dellorto reports on the experience of Jason Koger, the first double amputee to receive a new, incredibly sensitive bionic hand, the i-Limb Ultra Revolution (by Touch Bionics). This prosthetic is far more dexterous than previous models and can be programmed, in part, through an iPhone app. While the hand itself is remarkable, also interesting is Koger’s discussion of the variety of prosthetics he uses, including a metal claw (waterproof, unlike the i-Limb). I’m fascinating by such advancements in technology, but also in their limitations, and the adaptability and necessity of the old school models. The future is here, but it’s not 100% ready to replace the past.br
