Sgt. Juan Arrendondo served in Iraq. In 2005, he lost his hand during an attack while on patrol. Things looked pretty grim at the time.

In July, Arrendondo was fitted with a bionic hand called the I-LIMB. The I-LIMB is made of a special plastic then coated to look like human skin. It has 5 individual motors which control each finger.

With his new flexible fingers, Arrendondo can do many things he thought he’d never do again. He can grip a door knob and turn it. He can hold a glass. These simple pleasures are making his life a whole lot easier.

You can find out more about the I-LIMB at their website.
