World 1st full double arm transplant using IVS3 in his rehab program

10 décembre 2021

Felix Gretarsson had both of his arms and shoulders amputated more than 20 years ago.

This first double arm and shoulder transplant was conducted by Professor Jean-Michel Dubernard at Edouard Herriot Hospital in Lyon, France.

He started his rehabilitation program in Henry Gabrielle rehabilitation hospital (Lyon) including visuomotor simulation training approaches with IVS3 from Dessintey.

The early signs are very promising as he can now produce small distal movement and grasping.

Dessintey is really proud to be part of this amazing story.
