Creating a Prosthetic Hand That Can Feel

Eventually, we hope to engineer a prosthesis that is just as capable as the hand that was lost. Our more immediate goal is to get so close that Spetic might forget, even momentarily, that he has lost a hand. Right now, our haptic system is rudimentary and can be used only in the lab: Spetic still has wires sticking out of his arm that connect to our computer during the trials, allowing us to control the stimulation patterns. Nevertheless, this is the first time a person without a hand has been able to feel a variety of realistic sensations for more than a few weeks in the missing limb. We’re now working toward a fully implantable system, which we hope to have ready for clinical trials within five years.
