With the help of brain-machine interface technology and robotic arms, a paralyzed man was able to feed himself for the first time in thirty years.
Researchers have developed a virtual robotic arm that can be controlled by a person's feet in a virtual environment to provide an "extra" limb. After training, users reported feeling the virtual limb felt as though it was part of their physical body.
Researchers have successfully stabilized an enzyme that is able to degrade scar tissue as a result of spinal cord injury with the help of AI and robotics.
A newly designed bionic eye is safe and stable for long-term implantation, researchers conclude following a three-month study in sheep. The discovery paves the way for human trials of the bionic device.
Researchers have identified how specific neurons in the cuneate nucleus help filter distracting information to coordinate dexterous movements. The findings have implications for the development of new prosthetics and robotic equipment that can fine-tune movement based on the sense of touch.
