Alice in Wonderland: a little resident of Chelyabinsk was given a cyber hand in SkolkovoBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/alice-in-wonderland-a-little-resident-of-chelyabinsk-was-given-a-cyber-hand-in-skolkovo
7-year—old Alice Obolenskaya from Chelyabinsk is a little cyber princess. The girl received the royal title after the residents of Skolkovo made an innovative prosthetic right forearm for her. The baby is very happy with her new cyberhand and even learned to draw with it.
The resident of Skolkovo, the company for the production of bionic prostheses "Motorika", made a prosthetic arm for little Alice Obolenskaya from Chelyabinsk. The girl has not had a right hand since birth.
The previous prosthesis was very heavy for the child, he just imitated the hand. The new prosthesis has a "breathable material" (the handle does not sweat at the attachment point), it is very light, and most importantly, the fingers move.
The baby's parents have made a lot of efforts to issue the necessary documentation for inclusion in the rehabilitation program — then the prosthesis is provided free of charge.
The girl enjoys using a new prosthesis, which she calls a super-arm. Alice will go to the first grade in the fall. Now she is mastering her new hand with might and main. The girl's mother says that the prosthesis can be adjusted to the desired size by yourself. And in case of damage (once Alice has already torn off the rubber phalanges of her fingers), "Motorika" restores the prosthesis for free.
Specialists need about two weeks to make a prosthesis. Their replacement is carried out free of charge every six months, a year, and sometimes every three months. Only in the Southern Urals, 10 people have already become owners of cyber hands. And Alice is now looking forward to trying on her new, bionic prosthesis.
By the way, the girl chose the color of her super—arm - pink—purple.
