luiy's curator insight, February 23, 2014 1:29 PM

Something is missing. Every amputee knows it, and it is more than the arm or leg they have lost. They can getreplacements for those limbs: substitutes made from metal and plastic, controlled by advanced computer chips, with the ability to grip, to turn, to step. On the outside the limbs can appear lifelike, and on the inside they are amazing machines.

 

But they are tools, not part of the patients themselves. They have no sensitivity, and no instant response to a patient's intentions.
