Bionic arm demonstrated by soldier5th April 2011
Corporal Andrew Garthwaite has become the first soldier in the UK to try out a new bionic arm.
The 23-year-old, who lost his arm during a battle in 2010, was given the arm after six months of rehabilitation. The arm is sensitive to movements made by his pectoral and shoulder muscles, which means it can grip objects. Cpl Garthwaite said: "It's so nice to be able to hold a cup, stir something, open a jar and do the simplest things in life."
