MIT Develops New Procedure to Allow Amputees to Receive Sensory Feedback from Prothestic Limbs

Prosthetics have come a long way in 3,000 years.  Yesterday, I posted an article describing how Swiss Egyptologists had discovered a wooden toe prosthetic estimated to be 3,000 years old.  Jump forward three millennia and today’s post is about a new surgical procedure developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that allows a patient to receive sensory feedback from a prosthetic.  You can read about the procedure in this article on Science Daily…. Making prosthetic limbs feel more natural: Muscle grafts could help amputees sense and control artificial limbs — ScienceDaily
