Researchers have developed a new method of restoring movement sensation for upper limb amputees. The researchers used small robots to vibrate muscles in order to 'turn on' movement sensations.
Amputees are able to regain sense of touch and 'feel' with their prosthetic hands, thanks to new technological advances.
A new study reports amputees often feel as though their prosthetic limb is part of their body.
Researchers have created an artificial nervous system that may give prosthetics and robots reflexes and the ability to sense touch. The system is sensitive enough to identify letters in the Braille alphabet.
A newly developed bionic arm combines motor control with touch and hand movement sensations, allowing those with upper-arm amputations to behave and react as though they haven't lost their limb.
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 developed a brain friendly extracellular matrix environment that could help change the way people with spinal cord injury and prosthetics lead their lives.
