Sixteen years after losing his right arm, UK-based vicar Daniel Cant could hug his three children with two arms for the first time.
"The tears, the joys, and absolute speechlessness. They've never known me to have two limbs," Daniel said gleefully during an interview.
His prayers were answered by his six-year-old son Aaron, who discovered the prosthetic arm online that would change his father's life.
"One morning, we heard Aaron shouting from downstairs, it was Saturday actually, and he was very jubilant. On investigating, we found him sat on the sofa with his tablet and said, I've found it. I've found it. I've googled 'Dad's hero arms'," Daniel recounts of his young son's discovery.
Aaron found the bionic 'hero arm' from British company Open Bionics. The technology uses sensors which detect contractions generated from specific muscle groups in the arm.
In response to his dad's question, 'Why did you search those words?' Daniel says his son gave the most heartwarming answer, sharing that his son had said he had "wondered what Daddy could do with two arms".
He continued, "I just wanted to give Aaron the biggest hug ever... there are no words".
