FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A new bionic hand is opening new doors for the future of prosthetic limbs.

Methodist Orthotics and Prosthetics in Flowood showed off the new I-Limb prosthetic hand today.

The bionic hand allows clients the ability to open and close their hand as well as move all five fingers.

Older prosthetic hands only allow opening and closing of the hand. 

The bionic hand is life-changing for clients like Leasa Thompson who showed off the capabilities of the hand with her young nephew.

She is now able to pick up tiny objects as small as baby food. 

The bionic hand ranges in price from $80,000 to $100,000.
