Researchers at EPFL in Switzerland have created a groundbreaking technology that allows amputees to experience the sensation of wetness through their prosthetic limbs. This innovation involves a sensor attached to the prosthetic hand connected to a stimulator that contacts the amputee’s residual limb, enabling them to feel the wetness sensation on their skin. This pioneering invention not only has the potential to enhance the dexterity of prosthetic hands but also to significantly improve the sensory perception and acceptance of prosthetic limbs among amputees.
