Sixteenth century mechanical prosthetic hand
Götz von Berlich (1480-1562) was a knight and mercenary who waged war across the length and breadth of Central Europe during his surprisingly long life. When he lost a hand in battle, he designed an iron replacement. A mechanical marvel for the time, it had actuated fingers that Götz could control with levers.
