Wake Forest man receives bionic hand

WAKE FOREST, N.C. -- A Wake Forest man who lost his hand in a workplace accident will soon be able to go back to work.

That's because Wednesday he received a state-of-the-art bionic hand, and now he is using this gift to give others a hand.

Warner Jamison's wrist was crushed in a workplace accident. Doctor's eventually had to amputate it.

Frank Loverso, a prosthetist, helped fit Jamison with a hand he says is one of the most advanced and one of few being used in the Triangle.

Jamison's forearm muscle controls the hands movement, and he says he'll be able to do many of the things he used to do and some new things.

"I want to ride a motorcycle, I want to operate a chainsaw and I will be able to do those things," he explained.

Jamison has a couple of different attachments he can use for different tasks. He says he'll be going back to work with the same company and will be helping with safety and accident prevention.
