A gran who lost her limbs after a paper cut gave her sepsis has become Britain's first NHS patient to get a life-changing bionic hand.
Marguerite Henderson, 57, admits she cannot wait to eat a burger with her new hi-tech "Michelangelo" hand after living without her left arm and both legs for three years.
Since receiving the prosthetic from the WestMARC centre on the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Campus in Glasgow, Marguerite says she has been far more independent.
Marguerite from Crosshill, Fife, said: "I've only had it a few weeks, but already it's helping me to be more independent.
"It will mean very simple things like cutting my own food, eating different things, feeling comfortable about eating out – I can't wait to eat a burger, which of course you need two hands for."
Her progress, after nearly dying from sepsis when it ripped through her body in a matter of days in February 2018, has been little short of remarkable.
Marguerite said: "I am so glad the surgeon was able to save part of my hand. I can use it to type, sew, phone people and do my own hair, use my wheelchair and lots more.
"It's not the life I would have chosen but I owe my life to the NHS.
"My new left hand will make me so much more independent. It just opens up so many things for me now. I am very lucky."
Marguerite's new high-tech hand works by her firing different muscles in her forearm to trigger the hand to do different movements.
Senior prosthetist Vincent MacEachen explained: "Marguerite was a natural – it normally takes many weeks to get used to a new hand, but you can normally tell within five minutes if someone is a good prospect.
"The Michelangelo hand is quite intuitive.
"There are two sensors in the socket on Marguerite's arm - basically one to open and one to close.
"How strongly Marguerite flexes her muscles determines the speed and the movement the hand makes.
"With practise she can produce several movements - open, close, rotate the wrist left and right and position the thumb for different grasps.
"It's been a pleasure to work with Marguerite who has been motivated to try new treatments and put in the practice required. I wish her all the best in future."
The hand was fitted over Zoom.
Alan Gordon and Alistair Ward, from the hand's manufacturer Ottobock, watched Marguerite's responses remotely, then relayed instructions about the adjustments to make.
They repeated this process until the hand was working perfectly.
