A prosthetic arm that is attached to the bone and controlled by electrodes implanted in nerves and muscles can operate more precisely than conventional prosthetic limbs. Researchers improved the neuroprosthetic hand by integrating tactile sensory feedback, so the patient can "feel" items.
WUSTL researchers have developed a new, implantable and biodegradable device that delivers pulses of electrical activity to damaged peripheral nerves in rats, helping the animals to regrow nerves and improve nerve function.
Researchers have developed a new brain implant which may help prevent Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have developed a 3D printed guide that helps regrow neurons and restore both sensory and motor function following complex nerve injury.
