Researchers show insect limbs can move without muscles. The finding could provide engineers to find additional ways to improve the control of robotic and prosthetic limbs.
Reconnecting muscle pairs during surgery following amputation provides patients more sensory feedback from the limb, researchers report.
The first implant to treat vertigo experienced during attacks related to Meniere’s Disease and similar balance disorders will be implanted...
Devices which could be used to rehabilitate the arms and hands of people who have experienced a stroke have been...
Proprioception feedback of a robotic arm helped improve the performance of monkeys using brain machine interfaces to control a computer cursor. When the monkeys were fit with exoskeletons that provided arm movements synchronized with the cursor movement, control of the cursor improved by 40%.
Thought control of prosthetic limbs via brain-controlled interfaces will be tested and developed with funding from DARPA. Human subjects will test neural interface systems used to control prosthetic limbs.
A new study reports amputees often feel as though their prosthetic limb is part of their body.
Researchers have developed new software that allows powered prosthetics to automatically tune themselves, making the limbs more functionally useful.
