A Quick Look at Electronic Skin

Electronic skin is the linchpin to the next generation of bionic limbs, especially bionic hands. The ability to sense contact, pressure, texture, etc., is one of the main prerequisites for more intuitive control and greatly improved dexterity.

Advanced Neural Interfaces for Bionic Hands

Our brains are intimately connected to our bodies by a sophisticated network of nerves and touch receptors. It was only a matter of time before we sought to incorporate our bionic hands into this network. That time has arrived.

Understanding Bionic Touch

Bionic touch — the ability to recreate a sense of touch in bionic prostheses — is quickly becoming a reality. Mimicking the natural sensory signals seems to be the optimal path to success. Now the race is on to finalize…

OsseoIntegration for Bionic Limbs

Osseointegration for limbs involves inserting a metal rod into an arm or leg bone. The bone then fuses with the rod in a manner similar to fracture healing. The resulting implant is strong, stable, and intimately connected with the patient.

Mind-Controlled Bionic Limbs

Mind-controlled bionic limbs are now a reality thanks to numerous scientific breakthroughs. Dual-site myoelectric sensors placed against the skin’s surface offer the simplest method of delivering a limited degree of mind control. Pattern Recognition and/or targeted nerve reinnervation can significantly…
