Surrey Woman to Get Bionic Hand

As per reports, it has been revealed that a Surrey woman is the first one from Britain to get a bionic hand. Nicola Wilding, 35, met with a car accident some 13 years ago in which her right hand was paralyzed.

She underwent many operations, but none of the operations were able to bring movement in her hands. Nicola said that little things to which one does not pay much attention became so difficult. Spreading butter on bread slices, dressing up in the morning and opening shampoo bottles under the shower were some of the activities, which became all of sudden to be difficult tasks.

“It is the everyday things. If you go to butter toast you can't hold it. I've used my teeth to open bottles and chipped some teeth. Taking my clothes off, having a shower”, said Nicola.

Nicola, who is mother of one, said that her desperation increased so much that she went to doctor and asked him to cut off her hand. She further affirmed that she saw an advertisement on television about metal-fingered prosthetic hand. She instantly decided that it was something, which she was looking for.

She again visited doctor and asked him to replace his hand with the metal-fingered prosthetic hand. Nicola said that she is no bothered about how will it look as she is more than happy that she will be able to lead normal life again.

Dr. Oskar Aszmann, an Austrian surgeon will be conducting the surgery. He was of the view that such kind of surgeries is risky and they are irreversible also. However, Nicola is a good candidate to undergo such kind of surgery and is quite positive about it.
