General Interest
Impairment
In 2019 his hands were injured in a workplace accident in Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina. His right hand was amputated after he was transferred to a hospital in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, while he also sustained injuries to his left hand in the accident. He was later fitted with a robotic prosthetic on his right arm. "I was the shift leader at a rolling mill. There was a misunderstanding, the machinery was started and I didn't get out in time. My right hand became caught and when I tried to free myself, my left hand also became caught. The people who were there reacted quickly, but as soon as I took my hands out I realised I would have an impairment for the rest of my life." (balkans.aljazeera.net, 28 Oct 2020)
Other information
ROBOTIC PROSTHESIS
Following the amputation of his right hand in a workplace accident in 2019, his company sent him to Munich, Germany to have a robotic prosthesis fitted. He required multiple operations and as part of the procedure a muscle was removed from his left leg and transferred to his right arm so he could control the prosthesis. "When the general manager visited me at home, he saw that it was not right and promised that it would be the most modern prosthesis in the world. The company approved the funds, so I spent two months in Munich at the clinical centre, where there were top doctors. A muscle was removed from my left leg and transplanted to my right arm. After that was done and when everything was ready, I went back to Germany and got the prosthesis. It's not the same as a real hand. I have to look at what I'm going to take and how, but my brain still gives orders to the nerves and that transmits to my prosthetic hand."
