|" MADRID Womens Jonnu Smith Jersey , March 13 (Xinhua) -- Nigel Ackland admits that when he lost his arm in an industrial accident in 2006, it nearly killed him, not just because of the physical handicap he suffered, but also because of people's reaction when they shied away from him or averted their gaze.
He said it made him feel ""invisible,"" and although he understands it's a natural reaction for people who don't know how to deal with disability, the stigma was a lot to overcome.
However Womens Taywan Taylor Jersey , Ackland's life changed drastically when he was asked to try using a bebionic hand made partly of carbon fiber.
""I just got a call out of the blue,"" he told Xinhua. ""This company, RSL Steeper had a new hand and asked if I would help with the trial. And that was it ... It was purely by chance.""
But he admits that once he tried on the arm, something changed.
""I cried ... I powered up (the arm), shook hands and I cried. I hadn't shaken hands for five years,"" he said Womens Adoree' Jackson Jersey , adding that his reaction is similar to that of nearly everyone who tries the arm for the first time. ""It's just such a shift in your life ... It's totally life changing.""
On Friday, Ackland attended the Singularity Summit, an artificial intelligence conference in the Spanish city of Seville, to talk about his experience with his prosthetic hand.
He also attended an event organized by Singularity University from Silicon Valley in the United States, where experts in a range of fields are putting forward techniques and technology which they hope will benefit the lives of people needing prosthetics.
""It is worth remembering there are 30 million people around the world who don't have any access to prosthetics. That's the population of Florida and that is too many people,"" said.
But like so many speakers at the summit Womens Corey Davis Jersey , Ackland is prepared to look ""outside the box."" He believes that the technology has now reached a point where people who need a replacement arm or leg have much more freedom than in the past.
""It has been always function over form,"" he said, explaining that in the past it didn't matter how an artificial limb looked as long as it did the job.
""Now the technology is allowing form and function to come together. You will see people wear more realistic limbs and some wear more robotic limbs. We are now in a situation where you can say 'I'd like a purple leg,' or like supermodel Victoria Modesta 'I'd like 2,000 Swarovski crystals in my leg.' People will do this and the technology is allowing it,"" he said.
Ackland's own experience backs that up. ""The reaction I used to get from people was that they would take a step back Womens Marcus Mariota Jersey , now I get the opposite,"" he said.

An SOA inspection team exposed a number of flaws concerning landreclamation in Jiangsu after an investigation in the province fromAugust to September, said a SOA press release.
The province made slow progress in restoring environment alongits coast, the statement said, adding that it only finishedrestoring the environment along half of the 300-km targetedcoastline required by the State Council.

A total of 14 projects, involving81.29 hectares of reclaimed land, have been wrongly approved since2012.

Developers of 184 land reclamation projects did not obtaingovernment approval before they started building theirprojects.
The province was also found failing to effectively protectnature reserves. Fish farming has still been operated in about9 Cheap Jonnu Smith Titans Jersey ,955 hectares of sea waters around a national wetland reserve inJiangsu, where such commercial operations should have been banned,according to SOA.
The land contributed to more than 85 percent of pollutants inoffshore waters along the Jiangsu coast, and the provincialgovernment did not have a complete list of polluters.
