Bionic Hand Successfully Regenerates Sense Of Touch

Amputee feels in real-time with bionic hand Dennis Aabo Sørensen is the first amputee in the world to feel sensory rich information (in real time), thanks to a prosthetic hand hard-wired into the nerves in his upper arm.

Meet the extraordinary double amputee who never stopped climbing, Hugh Herr. He developed a bionic prosthetic pair of legs that will serve his purpose—to keep living and not wasting Albert Dow’s sacrifice, who took part in the search and rescue operation for Hugh and his climbing partner. Regarded as one of the best climbers of the USA, pre & post leg amputation. "There's no such thing as a disabled person. There's only disabled technologies." Hugh Herr…

Thought-controlled arms to be fitted to patients this Winter.  Researchers in Sweden are preparing for the first operations to attach mind-controlled artificial arms to patients this (Northern) Winter.    Current prostheses are only used by around 50% of arm amputees, as they are often uncomfortable and offer very limited functionality. The new technology will be anchored directly to the skeleton by a process known as osseointergation, which will mean the prosthetic arm will be more…
