Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft's German-Polish High-Performance Center brings additive manufacturing to medical technology – first demonstrators will already be presented by the end of 2021.
Researchers have developed an artificial skin that senses force through ionic signals and also changes color from yellow to a bruise-like purple, providing a visual cue that damage has occurred.
With the aid of a virtual reality model, researchers from the Knappschaftskrankenhaus Bochum have examined, which errors can occur during the communication between the brain and robotic prosthesis.
Researchers have demonstrated that, with training, neural control of a powered prosthetic ankle can restore a wide range of abilities, including standing on very challenging surfaces and squatting.
Researchers have enabled a quadriplegic man to control a pair of prosthetic arms with his mind.
Researchers have developed a revolutionary cortical vision device that could one day help restore vision to the blind.
Researchers have shown that machine learning techniques helped an individual with paralysis learn to control a computer cursor using their brain activity.
Researchers have created synthetic materials with morphing abilities that can be 3D printed and self-heal within seconds.
Researchers have developed robotic prosthetic legs which use motors that were originally designed for use on the robotic arm of the ISS.
Researchers have developed an artificial liquid retinal prosthesis to counteract the effects of diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration.
Researchers have developed a system for integrating artificial chip-based 'neurons' with real neurons using QR-code-like patterns of light to facilitate communication.
Scientists have developed the world's first fully integrated bionic arm prosthesis that is ready to use – in keeping with the motto "Plug and Play".
