‚Bionic man‘ surprises roboticists

Published on Feb 13, 2013

A bionic man, complete with working artificial organs, synthetic blood and functioning limbs has been built by robotics experts. Costing more than £500,000 to build, the human-like machine is on display at the Science Museum in London. Robotics expert Richard Walker, and Prof Alexander Seifalian of University College London, explained to the BBC’s John Maguire how aspects of technology for helping disabled people, were brought together for the project.

The Mind-Controlled Bionic Arm With a Sense of Touch

Published on Aug 18, 2016
In the first episode of Humans+, Motherboard dives into the world of future prosthetics, and the people working on closing the gap between man and machine. We follow Melissa Loomis, an amputee from Ohio, who had experimental nerve reversal surgery and is going to Johns Hopkins‘ Applied Physics Lab to test out its latest Modular Prosthetic Limb, a cutting-edge bionic arm funded in part by DARPA. Neuro-interfacing machinery is a game changer in terms rehabilitating patients, but what possibilities do these advancements open for the future? Subscribe to MOTHERBOARD:

Mind control: Australian-made bionic spine moves robotic limbs using your thoughts – TomoNews

Veröffentlicht am 25.02.2016

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA — There may be new hope for people with spinal cord injuries, thanks to a device that is being hailed as the „holy grail“ in bionics.

Australian scientists are developing a bionic spine that could allow paralyzed patients to move using the power of thought.

The device, a stent-electrode recording array or stentrode, is the size of a small paper clip. Details on the stent were outlined in an article published in the journal Nature Biotechnology.

Bypassing the need for open brain surgery, the stent is instead inserted into the jugular vein using a catheter. It’s pushed up to a blood vessel in the brain, where it then expands.

Electrodes on the stent record electrical activity from the motor cortex, which controls movement, and translate the electrical activity into commands. The commands are sent to a transmitter embedded just below the chest, which in turn sends them wirelessly to an exoskeleton or a wheelchair, allowing the patient to move.

„It’s the holy grail for research in bionics,“ said Terence O’Brien of the Royal Melbourne Hospital, a professor who is overseeing the project, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Scientists tested the stent on sheep for 190 days, and are set to do human trials on three paraplegic patients next year.

The project was three years in the making, and was partly funded by Australia’s National Health and Medical Research Council, as well as by the U.S. Army, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
