Neuroprosthetics and Solutions for Restoring Sensorimotor Functions

This new class of prosthetic devices looks, feels, and functions like natural limbs, but their internal construction includes complex machinery, motors, sensors, and control instrumentation. Therefore, durability is a major concern, especially since users will be more able to engage in rigorous physical activities. The fourth project will rigorously test currently available and newly designed prosthetics to understand the components that fail and the ways to remediate these failures. In addition, devices will be built that can track prosthetic use and thus provide information on the use in terms of both distance traveled and force imparted.

This work was done by Douglas Weber, Ph.D., of the University of Pittsburgh for the Army Medical Research and Materiel Command. For more information, download the Technical Support Package (free white paper) at www.medicaldesignbriefs.com/briefs. ARL-0101
