AOPA In Advance SmartBrief | Feb 26, 2015

Three men in Austria underwent voluntary amputations of poorly functioning limbs and were fitted with the world's first "bionic-reconstruction" prostheses. Selective nerve and muscle transfers provide signals that are translated into mechatronic functions to animate the device. The men submitted to extensive training before receiving the mind-controlled prostheses. CNET (02/24)
