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.
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.
Researchers have developed biodegradable microresonators that could soon be used in implants to control the release of painkillers within tissue.
Researchers have successfully implanted sensors in three male patients following nerve transfers, to transmit biosignals for wireless control of robotic arms.
A new 3D printed prosthetic hand can learn the wearers' movement patterns to help amputee patients perform daily tasks.
Engineers have designed pliable, 3D printed mesh materials whose flexibility and toughness they can tune to emulate and support softer tissues such as muscles and tendons.
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.
Wearing a sensor-packed glove while handling a variety of objects, researchers have compiled a massive dataset that enables an AI system to recognize objects through touch alone.
Researchers have developed a next-generation bionic hand that allows amputees to regain their proprioception.
Bionic reconstruction: Researchers showed that after amputation of a hand, muscles can be repurposed using nerve transfers.
Enginners have developed 3D printed assistive technology that can track and store their use — without using batteries or electronics.
Robots will be able to conduct a wide variety of tasks as well as humans if they can be given tactile sensing capabilities.
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.
Researchers from the University of Salford have used electronic sensors to show that people with artificial arms and hands are doing damage to their intact limbs.
Researchers are developing a simple retinal prosthesis that could restore sight to blind people. Fabricated using cheap and widely-available organic pigments used in printing inks and cosmetics, it consists of tiny pixels like a digital camera sensor on a nanometric scale.
