ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Aimee Copeland, the college student who lost both hands and a leg to a flesh eating bacteria, is making history.

She is the first woman to use bionic hands.

Touch Bionics in Ohio gave Copeland the hands when her insurance would not cover it.

She will now be their spokesperson.

Copeland said she's thrilled with her new hands and she's already doing her own hair and, believe it or not, cleaning.
