The researchers noted that this prosthesis not only performs useful functions, but also improves the quality of life of amputees by allowing them to interact more naturally with the environment.

Engineers have created a prosthesis that helps sense temperature and touch. Live Science writes about it.

This achievement is made possible by a small sensor. This directly transmits changes to the patient’s central nervous system, where they are interpreted by the brain as the sensation of a missing arm.

Fabrizio, a 57-year-old Italian who was the first to receive the new device, successfully tested the ability to detect temperature.

He understood the temperature of objects and was even faster at completing tasks with metal cubes of different temperatures using the prosthetic.

In further tests while blindfolded, he was able to distinguish between the human hand and the prosthetic hand just by touching them.

Let us remind you that in Ukraine the procedure for prosthetics is simplified.

The procedure for providing Ukrainians with a means of rehabilitation has been improved
