Results from research building on the outcomes of previous FET projects CYBERHAND and NEUROBOTICS has recently featured in many news bulletins. Prof. Silvestro Micera (Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Pisa and École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) and his colleagues in the Lifehand2 project have published the results of a clinical trial in which a patient whose hand had been amputated was able to regain a sense of touch using an artificial hand.

FET would like to congratulate the project team on the reported results and wishes then success in the recently started NEBIAS project related to this work.
