Synopsis: In this article we show that rewiring nerves to different muscle targets in a distributed and concurrent manner is possible and conducive to improved prosthetic control. A multidisciplinary team of surgeons and engineers has circumvented this problem by reconfiguring the residual limb and integrating sensors and a skeletal implant to connect with a prosthesis electrically and mechanically. The Science Translational Medicine article illustrates how the transferred nerves progressively connected to their new hosting muscles.



Bionics is the science of creating artificial systems or devices that can work as parts of living organisms. Bionics or biologically inspired engineering is the application of biological methods and systems found in nature to the study and design of engineering systems and modern technology. Today, technologies are even making it possible to connect the mind to an artificial [...]
