Bionics Gives New Hope to Those Living With Physical Disabilities
MIT Professor Hugh Herr, who is building bionic limbs to end physical disability caused by trauma and disease, shared his story, “On the Design of Bionic Limbs: The Science of Tissue-Synthetic Interface,” at a recent Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series presentation. NIH’s Functional and Applied Biomechanics Section is also investigating how such technology can improve the function of people living with movement disabilities as a result of neurologic disorders such as cerebral palsy and spina bifida.
