A method for restoring feeling and action to amputees and others who have lost their sense of touch has been established through research published in Proceedings of National Academy of Science (PNAS) today.

Brain shapes come from mom and dad

By linking genes to brain shapes, scientists have a new way to study how the brain works.

A father who lost his arm in an accident six years ago has been given a new lease on life by a hi-tech bionic hand which is so precise he can type again. Nigel Ackland, 53, has been fitted with the Terminator-like carbon fiber mechanical hand which he can control with movements in his upper arm. The new bebionic3 myoelectric hand, which is also made from aluminum and alloy knuckles, moves like a real human limb by responding to Nigel’s muscle twitches.

The NESS H200™ is a breakthrough in FES (Functional Electrical Stimulation) technology that can dramatically assist patients with neurological disorders affecting the function of the arm and hand. The H200 is a non-invasive device, worn on the forearm and hand that enables patients to perform every day activities that were previously impossible. The NESS H200 can help the hand open and close, reduce stiffness, increase range of motion and strength, and improve circulation. www.bioness.com
