The first ever bionic hand that allows an amputee to feel what they are touching will be transplanted later this year.

The unnamed patient lives in Rome and lost the power in his arm following an accident.

The operation could start a new generation of artificial limbs with the ability for people to feel touch through them.

The hand works by wiring the new bionic hand will be connected to the patient’s nervous system.

It is hoped that  the man will be able to control the movements of the hand as well as receiving touch signals from the hand’s skin sensors.

This should allow the man to control the hand by his thoughts, as well as receiving sensory signals to his brain from the hand’s sensors.
