01:17-01:40(lt) They have taken the muscle from the leg and transplanted in the arm, shoulder, here in this place. And then took nerves from the neck and transferred them to these muscles. And now I can even manage ... arm ...
01:40-01:59(lt) To make the arm obey first is necessary to focus, to set up for movement to make the hand manageable. Still need training and training for all to be good. But I have already set the goal for myself to make the arm listen to me in a way I want.
