Photo: Prosthetic arm [20/08/2014] Controlling a prosthetic arm by just imagining a motion may be possible through the work of Mexican scientists at the Centre for Research and Advanced Studies (CINVESTAV), who work in the development of an arm replacement to identify movement patterns from brain signals.New prosthetic arm controlled by neural messages - Read more

Rehabilitation methods for amputees and stroke patients

Photo: Hand drawing with a pencil [04/06/2014] Researchers at the University of Missouri (MU) have shed light on ways in which a patient compensates when losing a dominant hand and suggest new and improved rehabilitation techniques for those suffering from amputation or stroke.Rehabilitation methods for amputees and stroke patients - Read more

Photo: Prosthetic limb [23/04/2014] A new device could help to relieve the pain and discomfort experienced by thousands of amputees as a result of poorly fitting replacement lower limbs. Researchers are developing a prototype of the world's first prosthetic 'intelligent' liner with integrated pressure sensors, which could be available to NHS patients in as little as three years.Intelligent Prosthetic Liners Could Ease Pain for Lower Limb Amputees - Read more

Photo: Man with prosthesis running [10/02/2014] Thanks to advanced technologies, those who wear prosthetic and orthotic devices are now able to break previous activity boundaries. People with amputations now have prosthetic devices that allow them to engage in and function more effectively in a wider range of daily activities, exercise, sports, and even extreme sports, such as long-distance snowshoeing and ice climbing.High-Tech Prosthetics and Orthotics Offer Active Life-Style - Read more
