A Denver veteran is the first in the world to have a robotic prosthetic hand, which he can control with his thoughts. The Alfred Man Foundation developed the new technology. The foundation specializes in making life-enhancing technology possible. The sensors allow him to operate the arm with his thoughts. Seven other patients have received the robotic arm from the Alfred Man Foundation. At this point, the technology is not widely available but the hope is that someday that will change.
