3D printed, mind-controlled prosthetics are here | Challengers by Freethink
Bionic arms used to cost $80,000. Now, a young engineer has lowered the cost by over 90%.
Unlimited Tomorrow is pioneering a new age in prosthetics with its 3D-printed robotic arms. Founded in 2014 by Easton LaChapelle when he was just 18 years old, the company is poised to become a leader in the prosthetic arm industry. Their True Limb device costs less than $8,000 and it’s even cheaper for children, priced at about $4,000.
True Limb is both functional and realistic-looking, serving as a mirror image of the amputee's opposing limb, even down to the fingertips. And while the prosthetic arm is 60-90% cheaper than traditional prosthetics, many users say it’s far superior to market alternatives. What’s the secret? Unlimited Tomorrow uses a totally remote, custom process that cuts out middlemen to produce prosthetics completely in-house.
For the 40-million worldwide amputees in need of prosthetic limbs, this remote, personalized, and affordable process for fitting prosthetics means hope for a better future.

Bionic Skin Lets Amputees Feel Their Missing Limbs Again | Freethink Superhuman
For amputees, the sensation of a ‘phantom limb pain’ can be a terrible or disorienting experience -- feeling a hand, arm or leg that isn’t there anymore. But researchers at Johns Hopkins University have recognized that these sensations are a clue - they show that the nervous system is still looking for input from the missing limb. Now researchers have designed a way to provide that missing input with electronic skin.
Prosthetics should do more than replicate the mere mechanics of our limbs, they should connect us to the rest of the world, and they should make users feel complete. By studying how our nervous system transmits sensations throughout our bodies, researchers can mimic those signals from new input devices.
Until now, prosthetics have only been able to replace the mechanical functions of our limbs, but the e-dermis holds the promise of restoring the sense of touch, helping amputees finally feel whole again.
In our final episode of Superhuman Season 5, meet Luke Osborn, the researcher leading the study of electric skin for prosthetics and see how he is giving back the thing that connects us all.

Ultra-precise, mind-controlled prosthetic hand for amputees via RPNI neural interface
“It's like you have a hand again”: A new study from the University of Michigan gives amputees natural, finger-level control of a robotic hand:
In this major advance for mind-controlled prosthetics, U-M research led by Paul Cederna and Cindy Chestek demonstrates an ultra-precise prosthetic interface technology that taps faint latent signals from nerves in the arm and amplifies them to enable real-time, intuitive, finger-level control of a robotic hand.
For in-depth coverage of the research:
U-M’s approach to neuroprosthetics centers on the Regenerative Peripheral Nerve Interface (RPNI)—a small graft of muscle tissue surgically attached to the end of a severed nerve in an amputee’s arm.
While other neural interfaces are harmful to nerves, the RPNI promotes healthy nerve growth and acts as a bioamplifier, converting faint neural signals sent from the brain into large, recordable muscle signals that remain stable for years. Combined with machine learning algorithms, these signals enable intuitive, real-time mind control of advanced robotic prosthetic hands.
The research is published in the journal Science Translational Medicine and is titled, A regenerative peripheral nerve interface allows real-time control of an artificial hand in upper limb amputees.

Scientists create prosthetic bionic arm that enables amputees to feel
The new prosthetic limb sends signals between the brain and sensors in the 'fingers' to enable realistic touch and grip, say developers from the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. It links to limb nerves which send impulses from the patient's brains to the prosthetic when they want to use or move it, and the arm receives physical information from the environment through sensors, sending it back into the brain through nerves.

Terminator arm is worlds most advanced prosthetic limb | SWNS TV
More info about this amazing prosthetic can be found here
A father who lost his arm in an accident six years ago has been given a new lease of 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 fibre mechanical hand which he can control with movements in his upper arm. The new bebionic3 myoelectric hand, which is also made from aluminium and alloy knuckles, moves like a real human limb by responding to Nigel's muscle twitches. Incredibly, the robotic arm is so sensitive it means the father-of-one can touch type on a computer keyboard, peel vegetables, and even dress himself for the first time in six years.
The most natural robotic prosthesis in the world
[FOR ENGLISH SUBTITLES: Please, choose English subtitles in the video's settings above]
For several years, a number of Swedes have been living with a unique mind-controlled arm prosthesis, and the world's most integrated human-machine interface. They have a permanent connection between the prosthesis and the skeleton, muscles and nerves in their upper arm – and can even sense how hard they grip with their artificial hand.
Associate Professor Max Ortiz Catalan, at Chalmers University of Technology, explains the pioneering technology, how the sensor-equipped and algorithmically controlled robot prosthesis is connected via osseointegration and electrodes to the body, and what consequences the technology could have. The patients also describe their experience living with the world's most natural robotic arm.
Mind Controlled Prosthetic Arm
Watch the full story here:
A Colorado man made history at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) this summer when he became the first bilateral shoulder-level amputee to wear and simultaneously control two of the Laboratory’s Modular Prosthetic Limbs. Most importantly, Les Baugh, who lost both arms in an electrical accident 40 years ago, was able to operate the system by simply thinking about moving his limbs, performing a variety of tasks during a short training period.

Mind-controlled prosthetics: the next wave of 'smart arms'
(CNN)Tiffany Johnson and her husband, JJ, are avid cruisers -- self-described vacation junkies. In June 2017, the two left their home in Charlotte, North Carolina, and embarked on a relaxing cruise in the Caribbean.
On their final day, the Johnsons chartered a snorkel expedition in the Bahamas.
They took off in a small boat with another couple to a spot 10 minutes from Paradise Island.
Thirty minutes into the snorkeling excursion, Johnson bumped into something.
I was just staring at the fish, and I felt a tug on my arm, Johnson said.
I remember even just thinking 'Oh, what did I bump into?' And then when I turned, I was face-to-face with the shark.
The fight for her life
All she could see was the shark's black, beady eyes staring her down, then darting around. It was such a shock, it took a while for her to realize her entire arm was in the shark's mouth.
It was just this weird, eerie presence, she recalled. Fear just took over.
Instinctively, Johnson tried to pull her arm out of its mouth, and that's when it clenched down right below her elbow.
I remember hearing the sound of my screaming through the snorkel tube, she said.
My body wanted to give up. I was seeing almost like a movie reel of my kids, said Johnson, a mother of three. And I remember thinking, 'No, we are not going there.' And that's when the strength in the Lord just rose up from inside of me and gave me the strength to fight back.
Thrashing, pulling, praying, Johnson finally won the battle, but when she ultimately yanked her right arm free, half was gone, from the elbow down.
It was a mangled stump. And I remember even thinking right away, like, 'Oh my gosh, my arm's gone.' But I didn't feel any pain, she said.
The attack lasted no longer than a few minutes, she thought. The Johnsons later learned it was surprising that she survived at all.
Most people die from sharks pulling them down and drowning them, she said, but Johnson was at surface level the entire time, breathing out of her snorkel tube.
Back to the boat
Johnson yelled out as she swam back with her left arm.
Her husband, who had gotten out of the water earlier, dove in to help her back to the boat.
Once on deck, Johnson was calm. She said she felt a peace beyond anything she could ever express.
My husband was frantic, you know, just in sheer terror, and the captain's the same way, trying to grab the anchor, she said.
She had such a sound mind that she instructed her husband to grab their beach towel -- the only available option -- to stop the bleeding.
And then I laid my head down and I closed my eyes because in front of me I had literally sprayed blood everywhere. And I began to pray, she said.
They stopped at Paradise Island, the closest shoreline. But they couldn't help with such a severe injury. They had to return to the main port in Nassau.
When the ambulance arrived (at the port in Nassau) and they started wrapping my arm, that's the first time I felt pain. So, 45 minutes maybe without pain, which is just a miracle, Johnson said.
She had her first surgery in Nassau, but the hospital there could only do so much. She needed to return to the United States for more intensive surgery.
There was a problem: They didn't have their passports, since they didn't need them while cruising, and an emergency passport would take too long.
We had the minister of tourism in the Bahamas involved, the embassy involved, Customs involved. They were all trying to figure out a way to get us back to the US, Johnson said.
Johnson called her pastor back home in Charlotte. He had connections with a private jet company in the Bahamas.
She was evacuated off the island the next day and taken home to Charlotte.
Making prosthetics more human
Once Johnson arrived in Charlotte, she was placed under the care of orthopedic surgeons, Drs. Bryan Loeffler and Glenn Gaston. They're two of the surgeons pioneering an innovative procedure called targeted muscle reinnervation, or TMR, developed by Dr. Todd Kuiken in 2002.
The procedure has been the front line in the effort to improve the interface between humans and technology. The goal is simple: Give hope -- and control -- back to upper-limb amputees.
TMR enables the user's mind to communicate with artificial limbs via prosthetics that connect to the nervous system.
When most people raise a thumb, the brain sends a signal down the spinal cord, through a network of nerves that go down the forearm and into the muscles of the thumb, telling it to lift.
When the hand (is) lost, you still have that same signal that can be sent down, but it doesn't have a target anymore, Loeffler said.
With TMR, the surgeons take residual nerves that previously controlled the amputated limb and rewire them into the remaining part of the limb. It essentially gives that signal a t

In 2005, Johnny Matheny was diagnosed with cancer in his arm. Sadly, they had to amputate his left arm. After being introduced to Johns Hopkins Applied Physics lab, he qualified for a cutting-edge biotechnology study seeking an amputee or amputees to test a new robot arm - said to be the most technologically advanced robotic arm in the world. Johnny can control his new arm with his mind, giving him a level of motor control impossible until now. In this interview, we follow Johnny's journey from his illness to becoming the real bionic man.
