The benefits people could reap from exoskeletons rely heavily on having time to train with the device.
This battery could have a wide range of applications in various types of devices, from soft robots to wearable devices.
Researchers have developed a biocompatible energy storage device.
Researchers have inserted small magnetic beads into muscle tissue within an amputated residuum for more precise control of prosthetic limbs.
Every day, elderly people fall – be it at home or in care facilities. Lindera aims to reduce the risk of falling with the help of artificial intelligence.
Researchers have created life forms that self-assemble a body from single cells and do not require muscle cells to move. They're faster, live longer, and can now record information.
Using mathematical image processing, scientists have found a way to create digital twins from human hearts.
Experts working at the intersection of robotics, machine learning, and physics-based simulation share how computer simulation could accelerate the development of "smart robots" which "might interact with humans"
Researchers have developed a robotic exoskeleton that improves the lives of people with limited or no ability to move due to neurological and/or physiological disorders.
Researchers have developed a unique diagnostic tool that can detect dystonia from MRI scans, the first technology of its kind to provide an objective diagnosis of the disorder.
Although true “cyborgs” — part human, part robotic beings — are science fiction, researchers are taking steps toward integrating electronics with the body.
Loss of strength and muscle wastage is currently an unavoidable part of getting older and has a significant impact on health and quality of life.
A state-of-the-art brain-machine interface created by UC San Francisco neuroscientists can generate natural-sounding synthetic speech by using brain activity to control a virtual vocal tract – an anatomically detailed computer simulation including the lips, jaw, tongue and larynx.
Researchers have developed a super-stretchy, transparent and self-powering sensor that records the complex sensations of human skin.
A 3D printing technique allows fabrication of multilayer blood vessels that have the unique biomolecules needed to transform into functional blood vessels when they are implanted.
Scientists have successfully tested neuroprosthetic technology that combines robotic control with users’ voluntary control, opening avenues in the new interdisciplinary field of shared control for neuroprosthetic technologies.
Scientists have developed a tiny pump that could play a big role in the development of autonomous soft robots, lightweight exoskeletons and smart clothing.
The lives of thousands of people with mobility issues could be transformed thanks to ground-breaking research by scientists at the University of Bristol.
The Open-Source Bionic Leg will enable investigators to efficiently solve challenges associated with controlling bionic legs across a range of activities in the lab and out in the community.
Researchers have developed a next-generation bionic hand that allows amputees to regain their proprioception.
