Amputee Wolfgang Rangger said he can "feel better now" and "recognise surfaces" after having the first ever sentient prosthesis fitted to his leg, whilst talking with his doctors during a check-up in Innsbruck, Wednesday. The prosthesis connects a sensor with the nerves of the patient's leg, facilitating those nerves to send information to the brain, thus enabling the wearer to feel the ground they are walking on. When the prosthesis is first fitted the patient's brain needs to learn to understand the information it receives, but Rangger reportedly could interpret the artificial leg correctly after just two weeks of wearing it. According to Dr. Eva-Maria Baur, who was part of the team that developed the sentient prosthesis, it reduces the risk of accidents and also alleviates phantom pains.
