Can You Control a Bionic Limb With Your Mind?
The answer is now yes. Through groundbreaking technique and technology, bionic limbs are now powered by thought.
Vanderbilt University designed and developed the first-ever, thought-powered bionic limb.
Combining this technology with the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago's techniques, lead researcher Dr. Levi Hargrove said the result is, "activities unprecedented for any leg amputee."
Think it's too good to be true?
Zac Vawter, owner of the first of this bionic leg, climbed all 103 flights of stairs at Chicago's infamous Willis Tower.
Moving from sitting to standing, ascending and descending, are all powered by the mind.
Are you fascinated by the leaps and bounds-- literally-- of this new technology for amputees?
