    Breakthrough technology gives woman a new lease on life.

    New technology is helping Tabitha Mullings get back her life.

    She was fitted with new prosthetic hands.

    The new technology has multi-sensors and motors that allow Mullings to pick up everyday things like a phone or keys.

    The single mother lost her feet and hands after she says she was misdiagnosed by doctors at Brooklyn Hospital Center.

    Doctors there treated her for a kidney stone and sent her home. She came back only to discover that she infact had developed a sepsis infection. Gangrene set-in and that forced the amputations. The infection also cost Mullings part of her eyesight.

    She has sued the hospital.

    In the meantime, Mullings maintains a positive attitude saying her prosthetics have made her feel whole again.
