The research project called NEMESIS (NEurocontrolled Mechatronic Hand Prosthesis) from the Bio-Medico University campus in Rome, Italy is able to restore the sense of touch to Mr. Dennis Sørensen Aabo, a person with an amputated arm in this project that has received financial support from the Italian Ministry of Health. The prosthetic hand “LifeHand 2” has allowed him to feel again the touched objects.

This project aims to create a completely implantable prosthesis system, richly sensorized and controlled through the patient’s nervous system, with a dexterity comparable to a natural limb.
