Quadriplegic Woman Feeds Herself With Robotic Arm

Subscribe to TheFW on

This incredible video shows a woman’s journey from almost total immobility to being able to pick up and move objects, thanks to surgical brain implants connected to a robotic arm named ‘Hector.’

The goal that Jan Scheuerman set for herself before her surgery? To be able to feed herself a piece a chocolate. You may have tears in your eyes by the end of this gripping (sorry, bad pun) video as you watch her master this simple task.
