CNR 2014: Lectures: Nigel Ackland (GBR): BeBionic3 hand
The bebionic hand has a great impact on his life: " People stop me every day to ask me about it. How my hand makes other people feel when "Of the 32 million amputees in the world today, around 80 % (25 million) live in developing countries where only 5% have been fitted with an artificial limb. Around 200,000 people lost limbs as a result of the 2010 Haiti earthquake alone. International Society of Prosthetics and Orthotics they meet me is just as important as how it makes me feel".
