Cyberhand - Hope for a New Life

Hoffnung auf ein neues Leben

Christian Kandlbauer lost both arms in a high voltage accident. And yet the 20 year old can today lead a largely normal life again. This has been made possible by artificial arms and hands - operated only through the power of thought. Developed through a commission from the American ministry of defence in order to return disabled soldiers to duty, Christian was the first patient in Europe to receive the «Cyberhand». This documentary shows the development of this miracle of technology from conception to realisation and accompanies Christian on his arduous journey back to a normal life; from his first tentative attempts with the thought-controlled prostheses to gripping and feeling.
