Bionic Hand Restores Normalcy for a Local Woman
Just call her the "Bionic Woman."
One year after losing her left hand while working with a horse, 19 year old Courtney Mason says she is back to normal.
Thanks to a high tech prosthetic called "ProDigits."
Each finger has an independent motor, allowing Courtney to accomplish more daily tasks than she would with a traditional prosthetic.
She said, "I mean it's just being able to return to life and just have normal function...and being able to do things two handed and multi-task."
Mason is studying to be a equine veterinarian at the University of Florida. She says the bionic hand makes it easier to work with horses, which is still her passion.
