prosthetic limbs technology The future of permanent, fully integrated prosthetic limbs and bionic implants

The Future of Fully Bionic Posthetic Limbs is on the Horizon

The medical arena of the modern world has been through a number of significant changes within a very short period of time, especially in terms of prosthetic limbs technology. What we would not have thought to be a possibility a few years back; seemingly has become reality in the modern world. The functionality of prosthetic limbs, […]

New brain computer interface tech from Blackrock is making ‘mind over matter’ a reality

Advances in Brain Computer Interface Tech from Blackrock

In a pretty bizarre case, around the year 2012 Jan Scheuermann was reported to have had two electrodes acting as a “brain computer interface” implanted within the left cortex of her brain which were associated with motor functions. Miraculously the implants enabled her to carry out a series of complex functions which had not been […]

We can now remotely control paralyzed rats, letting them walk again: Humans are next

We can now remotely control paralyzed rats, letting them walk again: Humans are next

In the void left by the anticlimactic World Cup exoskeleton adventure, other efforts to make the paralyzed walk again are recapturing the spotlight. Chief among them is Grégoire Courtine’s research group at the EPFL in Switzerland. Their latest breakthroughs, just published in Science Translational Medicine, suggest that a more grounded approach is to repower the […]
