Meet the world's youngest person with a bionic arm

Patrick shows us his bionic arm

Meet Patrick, he's the youngest person in the world to have a bionic arm.

He had to have his arm and leg amputated when he was a baby after he got a disease called meningitis, but says he's never let it bother him.

Now he's been fitted with a bionic arm, which he can control using his mind!

It's transformed the 13-year-old's life, helping him do little things that we take for granted, like cut up his food and tie his shoelaces.
