'Terminator' arm is world's most advanced prosthetic limb

'Terminator' arm is world's most advanced prosthetic limb

Children with upper limb loss | Touch Bionics Whether your child has been born with a limb absence or loses a limb through amputation, you, the parent, have to decide what's right for your child. Will they wear a prosthesis from an early age or will you wait until they're older to help make that decision? There are several considerations to factor in to your child's care plan if you choose to have them fitted with a prosthesis at a young age. Children present different challenges than adults. Fitting a child with a device early can help to get them accustomed to a prosthesis as a routine part of their daily lives. I've had a prosthesis since I was six months old. Touch Bionics can custom design a natural-looking passive prosthesis for your child, which will closely resemble their natural hand. Due to the size limitations of next generation technology, there are few advanced prosthetic options for children. When your child reaches their teens, a more advanced active prosthesis can be considered.
