A mother who lost an arm and a leg after being run over by two subway trains becomes the first person in the world to operate a new £250,000 AI bionic arm that can read minds.
- Sarah says the bionic arm “learns which movements I do most often.”
Sarah de Lagarde, from northern Camden LondonShe died on her way home from work last September. She tripped and fell into the gap between the train and the edge of the platform.
Both her right arm and right leg were crushed when she was hit by a train leaving High Barnet station. She was then run over again by another tube, further aggravating her injuries.
It took about 15 minutes for someone to hear her crying and call emergency services, who took her to the hospital. She was then taken to her specialist ward where her arms and legs were amputated.
De Lagarde, who claims to be 80% human and 20% robot and will soon be using her new £250,000 bionic arm, told The Times that she was “a part of my life.” We can get the department back,” he said.

A mother of two, she says her AI-powered bionic arm “learns which movements I do most often” and over time “makes them easier.” ” claims to have software on board.
She told the newspaper that her brain would move her arms.
“The socket is attached to the upper arm and has a sensor that detects muscle spasms and software translates that impulse into arm movement,” she explained.
De Lagarde said her daughters are “very excited” about the technology and have started asking “how strong” the arm is or “how much can it break”.
“I’ve seen videos where a hand can hold an egg with three fingers or pick up a coin from a table,” she added.
De Lagarde recently started training on the bionic hand developed by Leeds-based company Covi.
When the family learned that the prostheses available on the NHS were primarily for cosmetic purposes, they started a fundraiser for the device.
Her daughters’ school held a walk to raise money, and people around the world pledged to support Lagarde’s recovery.
She now praises people for being “so generous,” she told The Times.

“I enjoy my job and in August I went on outdoor adventures with my kids and climbed Kilimanjaro. And about a month later my year took a dark turn.
“Next year will be a whole new adventure, including a new prosthesis that works!” “
Three months after the accident, de Lagarde said: good morning england She said she felt “so honored and grateful to be alive” even though it was “a terrible thing that happened.”
“Life is so precious and accidents like this can happen to anyone,” she said on a popular daytime TV show in December, giving a message of hope.
