Bionic Reconstruction of the Upper Extremity

Abstract: The upper extremity is by far the most frequently injured body part. This reflects the immense importance of this part of human anatomy to handle the world around us. Loss of function and/or actual loss of any of its parts disables any human being dramatically. The dream to reconstruct this loss with biologic and/or technical means has been in the centre of our endeavors since many years.
