Man Amputates Hand for Bionic One

It has to be the toughest decision anyone could make, but a man has decided to voluntarily amputate his hand. However this looks like a better alternative as he is going to replace his damaged limb with a bionic one.
An Austrian man has voluntarily had his hand amputated so he can be fitted with a bionic limb. The patient, called “Milo”, aged 26, lost the use of his right hand in a motorcycle accident a decade ago. After his stump heals in several weeks’ time, he will be fitted with a bionic hand which will be controlled by nerve signals in his own arm.
