Roy Eavenson, 74, has regained some fine-motor skills after being fitted with an i-limb ultra revolution prosthetic hand from Methodist Orthotics and Prosthetics in Flowood, Miss. Eavenson had a mid-forearm amputation of his left hand after an industrial accident. His new hand has individually motorized fingers and 24 pre-programmed movements that can be controlled from an iPod.
