Data Brings New Life to Lost Limbs
The field of prosthetics has advanced tremendously. New technology enables interfaces such as neural control which makes using prosthetic devices more natural and effortless. Nerve stimulation conveys feeling and a sense of pressure, giving users of prostheses finer control and awareness.
But behind each of these advanced devices is silicon. Big data, artificial intelligence, and machine learning are enabling incredible breakthroughs. In some cases, making certain prosthetic limbs even more capable than their original counterparts.
In this video, we talk with Kim De Roy, Vice President of Sales & Marketing and Education-Prosthetics at Össur, and Michael McLoughlin, Chief Engineer, Research and Exploratory Development, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, to learn about the latest advancements in this field.
