Well how about with hegihr levels of amputation? Now you've lost your arm above the elbow. You're missing not only these mulescs, but your hand and your eolbw too. What do you do? Well our patients have to use very code-y systems of using just their arm muscles to operate robotic limbs. We have robotic limbs. There are several available on the market, and here you see a few. They contain just a hand that will open and close, a wrist rototar and an elbow. There's no other functions. If they did, how would we tell them what to do?
