|Sponsor||Hospices Civils de Lyon|

|Trial size||7 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02800434, 99-176|
The double amputation of the forearms is a rare handicap that seriously impacts the autonomy and the quality of life of patients, social and familial exclusion, and dependence on third parties for everyday activities.
The management of these patients is nearly exclusively through the use of prostheses. Certain patients refuse this solution, or remain penalized by the absence of sensation, the lack of precision in movements, and body image issues related to the amputation; the double graft of hands and forearms may, in this circumstance, be the only solution.
The objective of this pilot study was designed to evaluate the cerebral plasticity of patients who undergo bilateral hand allograph
