The patient Wolfgang R. from Upper Austria underwent “Targeted Sensory Reinnervation” by  OÄ Dr. Eva-Maria Baur and OA Dr. Thomas Bauer at the University Clinic for Reconstructive Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery in Innsbruck which is a cooperation partner of the FH Upper Austria. During this procedure sensorial nerve endings  of the original foot were reactivated to serve as an indicator for pressure on the sole of a new prosthesis.
