Breckenridge man can control prosthetic arm with his brain
Breckenridge, MN (WDAY TV) - An update to a story we first told you about three years ago.
Mike Jirak had lost his arm in a truck roll-over accident. In 2011, he was fitted with a state of the art "electric arm."
It was called the U-3 Plus. A twitch of Mike's bicep or tricep moved the hand.
Now, a new type of prosthetic is changing the life of the Breckenridge man.
After a 15 and a half hour surgery at Mayo, Mike can now control his arm, with his brain.
