Prosthetics for arms and legs have evolved from the rudimentary wooden appendages of just a few decades ago.

Researchers have developed robotic prosthetic legs which use motors that were originally designed for use on the robotic arm of the ISS.
New prosthetic technologies that stimulate the nerves could pave the way for prostheses that feel like a natural part of the body and reduce the phantom limb pain commonly endured by amputees.
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.
