导读:一位青少年在童年时期因为败血病失去了手指,然而,在装上了仿生手指之后,她已经可以第一次刷牙了。在欧洲装上高科技手指的人士中,15岁的Chloe是最年轻的。她的父母用了38,000英镑花在她左手的全套仿生手指上,这些手指受控制于她左臂末梢神经所发出的电子信号。Chloe现在已经开始学习一些基本任务,比如如何使用刀和叉。她说:“长大成人是非常辛苦的,我不能做运动或其他任何事,因为我不能握住东西。”

teenager who lost her fingers to septicaemia as a toddler has been able to brush her teeth for the first time - after she was fitted with bionic fingers.

Chloe Holmes, 15, is the youngest person in Europe to be fitted with the high-tech digits.

Her parents funded £38,000 for a full set of bionic fingers on her left hand, which are controlled by electronic signals from the nerve endings in her arm stump.

Chloe is now learning basic tasks such as using a knife and fork for the first time.

She said: 'Growing up has been really difficult. I can't play sports or anything and I can't hold things.

'The best thing about my new hand is that now I can hold things. It is quite difficult, but I am getting used to it.

'I'm looking forward to going back to school so everyone can see it.'

Chloe, from Swindon, Wiltshire, contracted streptococcal septicaemia after being struck down with chicken pox aged three-and-a-half.

She spent three months in Bristol Children's Hospital, where her heart stopped four times and doctors feared she might not survive.

Chloe lost all the fingers on her left hand and was left with one thumb and half a finger on her right hand.

But her life has changed forever after being fitted with the bionic fingers, made by Touch Bionics in Scotland.

Parents Sue and Pete, both 41, said they never had second thoughts despite the cost.

The hand, which has been made specifically to fit Chloe's hand, is fitted with sensors in the sleeve which enable her to control the digits.

Father Pete said: 'I got her to come and collect my pint from the bar the other day and people just couldn't believe it.'

Sue added: 'She got stopped coming through customs when we came back from Scotland and they swabbed her arm for drugs.'

'They had never seen anything like it before but said they had to follow the rules. Chloe gave them a bit of a demonstration and they were stunned.'

'We are just absolutely delighted with it, it has made a huge difference to her life.'
