  • Amputee receives groundbreaking implant for prosthetic arm
    Doctors at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Sweden have permanently implanted electrodes into the nerves and muscles of an above-elbow amputee to control his prosthetic arm in a first-of-its-kind procedure. The arm can be detached from a titanium socket that was permanently fused to the bone of the residual limb. The implant "allows complete degree of motion for the patient, fewer skin related problems and a more natural feeling that the prosthesis is part of the body,” said surgeon Dr. Rickard Brånemark, who helped develop the technology.
