Nicky Ashwell has become the first UK user to receive what the makers call “the world’s most lifelike hand” — the  Stepper bebionic small. The myoelectric device uses miniaturized components designed to provide true-to-life movements, mimicking the functions of a real hand.

The Bebionic small hand works using sensors triggered by the user’s muscle movements that connect to individual motors in each finger and  microprocessors.
