Researchers in Ohio have found a revolutionary way to let amputees feel what they're touching with prosthetic hands.

The team from Cleveland Veterans Affairs Medical Center and Case Western Reserve University has created a means of letting users feel more sensations, better, and with more sustained results than ever before.
