Patients undergoing physical rehabilitation at Rush for paralyzing injuries are being aided by a robotic suit designed to help raise people to full height and walk.
Reseachers have developed robotic Trunk Support Trainer (TruST) that helps children with CP to sit more stably.
Linking the human brain to a computer is usually only seen in science fiction, but now scientists have harnessed the power of 3D printing to bring the technology one step closer to reality.
Researchers have developed a revolutionary cortical vision device that could one day help restore vision to the blind.
Exoskeletons are one technology with great potential - but is often developed for average people. So what about people who are small and thin, or tall and overweight?
Nanoengineers plan to develop an immunotherapy for ovarian cancer using 3D-bioprinted plant virus nanoparticles.
Researchers developed a device that can monitor bladder volume in real time and effectively empty the bladder.
3D printing fuels efforts to rapidly increase ventilator capacity while providing each patient on vent support with individually tailored gas pressures and pressure monitoring.
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.
Engineers have developed a robotic device that can be used to assist and train people with SCIs to sit more stably by improving their trunk control.
A new line of wearable robotics - a lightweight version of the armor that comic hero Iron Man wears - could keep seniors on their feet longer.
For the first time researchers successfully reproduced the electrical properties of biological neurons onto semiconductor chips.
Researchers have implanted electrodes in brain of a person who is mostly paralyzed to enable him to have some “mind control” of motorized prosthetic arms.
In a new study, researchers have demonstrated a novel and non-invasive way to manipulate cells through microrobotics.
A biofeedback device that is wearable and connects to novel smartphone games may offer people with incomplete paraplegia a more self-controllable therapy to enhance their recovery.
Scientists have developed a soft wearable hand robot that can aid the hand-disabled by using machine learning algorithm and sensory hardware.
Research from the BrainGate consortium shows that a brain-computer interface (BCI) can enable people with paralysis to directly operate an off-the-shelf tablet device just by thinking about making cursor movements and clicks.
Three patients with chronic paraplegia were able to walk over ground thanks to precise electrical stimulation of their spinal cords via a wireless implant.
Getting a better grip on things: The MoreGrasp Horizon2020 research project is coming to an end with significant results in the field of thought-controlled grasp neuroprosthetics. A large-scale feasibility study is underway.
Engineers and medical researchers have teamed up to create a groundbreaking 3D printed device that could someday help patients with long-term spinal cord injuries regain some function.
