How Bionic Limbs Improve the Lives of Amputees
Bionics is a modern method of replacing a biological limb or body part with a robotic prosthetic limb or part that is controlled by the wearer’s brain. Early model of prosthesis may have basic mechanical movement that is used as a simple replacement. Today’s bionic arm, leg, eye, cochlear implant and artificial heart are connected directly to our nervous system. Here’s how bionic limbs improve the lives of amputees, especially quadriplegics.
