Naki'o lost all four paws to frostbite and has become the very first pup to get outfitted with custom prosthetics for each leg.
New York's 3D printing expo shows off mass-produced printed prosthetics.
Watch Liam pick up sunscreen and coins with his prosthetic hand.
Using technology to enhance or augment human performance has come a long way, and a team from the U.K. is out to show just how much.
A couple of years ago, Bebionic gave us a peek at what the future of prosthetic limbs might look like. Now the company has improved the device's design and function and the result is simply astounding.
31-year-old Zac Vawter lost his leg in a motorcycle accident back in 2009 and wasn't quite satisfied with the responsiveness of his prosthetic (he refers to it as his "dumb" leg). So Vawter, a software engineer from Washington state, signed up to be a research subject for a promising new leg that is controlled by thought.
Robots can do some amazing things, such as playing basketball, but what they can't do is feel the objects they touch. Until now. It might seem like a small point — robots are, after all, non-sentient — but for anyone who has a prosthetic arm, being able to sense texture could lead to greater grip and usability.
Not everybody can afford a prosthetic arm. Most people can't. It's a good thing Lego are so versatile. Now you can build your own!
There are a lot of downsides to losing a hand/arm, but one of the upsides is that your replacement arm can be tweaked with a lot more creativity than your original, fleshy version. Just take Trevor Prideaux, who now has a smartphone dock built into his forearm.
Researchers at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee have paired both a powered knee and ankle, working in tandem, to create a bionic limb that is just about as good as the original. It's the first prosthetic limb to use said motorized joints in conjunction, and the results are impressive to see in motion.
