Brain-machine interface to control prosthetic hand

Photo: Man with a prosthetic hand grasping a bottle [08/04/2015] A research team from the University of Houston (UH) has created an algorithm that allowed a man to grasp a bottle and other objects with a prosthetic hand, powered only by his thoughts.Brain-machine interface to control prosthetic hand - Read more

Prosthetic hands, robotic trousers and biosensors – £5.3 million for health-care tech research

Photo: Prosthetic hand [16/03/2015] A prosthetic hand controlled by the nervous system, robotic clothing to help people with walking, and biosensors to monitor how patients use equipment or exercise during rehabilitation are the focus of three research projects awarded £5.3 million by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).Prosthetic hands, robotic trousers and biosensors – £5.3 million for health-care tech research - Read more

Research lays groundwork for next-generation prosthetics

Graphic: Muscles of the hand [18/02/2015] Three groups of researchers who have received support from the National Institutes of Health will obtain funding from the President's BRAIN Initiative to improve artificial limb technology.Research lays groundwork for next-generation prosthetics - Read more

Researchers study impact of power prosthetic failures on amputees

Photo: Powered prosthetic device [24/11/2014] Powered lower limb prosthetics hold promise for improving the mobility of amputees, but errors in the technology may also cause some users to stumble or fall. New research examines exactly what happens when these technologies fail, with the goal of developing a new generation of more robust powered prostheses.Researchers study impact of power prosthetic failures on amputees - Read more

Prosthetic and orthotic service in developing countries

Photo: Prosthetic and orthotic services [12/11/2014] How well do prosthetic and orthotic services work in countries characterized by poverty and civil war? Lina Magnusson, who became the first female Swedish prosthetist/orthotist with a PhD, wrote her dissertation on this topic at the School of Health Sciences, Jönköping University in Sweden.Prosthetic and orthotic service in developing countries - Read more

Photo: Two men at arm wrestling, one wearing a prosthesis [07/11/2014] A prosthetic hand, which provides a sense of touch acute enough to handle an egg, has been completed and is now exploited by the NEBIAS project after 10 years of EU-funded research. The world’s most advanced bionic hand was tested with the help of amputee Dennis Aabo Sørensen who was able to grasp objects intuitively and identify what he was touching, while blindfolded.NEBIAS: Prosthesis with intelligent sense of touch - Read more

Wearable interface to make prosthetics more comfortable

Photo: Bubble actuator [13/10/2014] UT Arlington researchers have been awarded a $744,300 grant from the Department of Defense Peer Reviewed Orthapaedic Research Program to create an adaptive interface that fits between a prosthetic and a patient's limb so that the fit and comfort of the prosthetic are improved.Wearable interface to make prosthetics more comfortable - Read more
