Real world prosthesis do not have the ability to continue fine motor functions. In this world the automail is connected to the nerve endings of the body. There are moving parts, gears, valves, and wiring that allows much finer range of motion. The ability of the motion is normally dictated to the training of the wearer and the skill of the Automail Engineer.
