Stephen Lowry: first man in Ireland to get bionic hand

Stephen Lowry, 51, is now the owner of a revolutionary new bionic prosthetic hand, believed to be the first of its kind in use on the island of Ireland. The Bebionic hand is made by Leeds-based company RSL Steeper and was provided to him by Musgrave Park Hospital’s Regional Disablement Services.

The prosthesis comes with a flesh-coloured skin glove, and works on advanced sensor technology that picks up the electrical impulses generated from the biceps and triceps of the amputee. Read more: BBC News NI
