Bridge between technology and physiology

Review on bidirectional bionic limbs



How can precise control of bionic limbs be improved in the future? A new review article by Dr.-Phil. Cristian Pasluosta from the Professorship for Biomedical Microtechnology and colleagues from Switzerland, Italy and Austria deals with this question in the Journal of Neural Engineering. Research on implants that can both decode motor commands from nerve or muscle signals and provide sensory feedback from a prosthesis to the nervous system has been conducted concurrently, but independently, with research on physiological changes after amputation. The authors demonstrate that bridging technology and physiology is of significant importance in the development of bionic limbs. A better understanding of the pathophysiology and movement control after amputations could help to significantly improve the functioning of bionic limbs.
