Karl Merk, a German dairy farmer who lost both of his arms in an accident, underwent the world's first double arm transplant surgery several months ago (posted here on Neatorama).

Karl Merk, a German dairy farmer whose arms had been amputated after an accident, said he felt like a "whole man" again as he spoke for the first time since the operation in July.
"The feeling is indescribable. Every day I gain more mobility," said Mr Merk as he showed off the arms, which are being supported by a special "corset" while the healing continues.
