The Future of Prosthetics: Replacement Limbs That Mimic Real Ones

In Brief Robotic prostheses can already restore some level of function, but they don’t often feel natural. Researchers at the MIT Biomechatronics Lab have been developing lower limb prostheses that feel like a natural extension of the human body. These robotic limbs use a variety of different techniques to ensure comfort as well as restoration of function to an amputee. Imagine you’re a rock climber on the icy slopes of Mount...
