Bionic Hand Gives Amputee Real-Time Touch Sensation
Bionic Hand Gives Amputee Real-Time Touch Sensation

Researchers have designed a new kind of prosthetic hand that allowed an amputee to experience the sensation of touch in real-time again. The prosthetic, which uses microelectric implants and sensors to create sensation, made it possible for the individual to distinguish between objects of varying shape and rigidity, such as a baseball and an orange.

 

Touch Restored

resultsin today’s Science Translational Medicine, noted they were presenting a single case study and much more research needs to be done. However, they said, their initial success could become the foundation for designing far more advanced artificial limbs that might be able to detect temperature, texture and other sensations.
