Modular Prosthetic Limb

The FDA proposed the Innovation Pathway, a priority review program for new, breakthrough medical devices and announced the first submission: a brain-controlled, upper-extremity prosthetic that will serve as a pilot for the program. The prosthetic arm shown in this video is the Modular Prosthetic Limb co-developed by HDT Robotics, Kinea Design, and Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab.

A 75 year old Vietnam veteran who lost his leg in the bloody Tet Offensive has become one of the leading designers of custom artificial limbs.

    Is this the project that Dean Kamen was initially involved with years ago (the DARPA arm), or is it something completely separate from that? This video demonstration is downright amazing…

    The Modular Prosthetic Limb (MPL) was developed as part of a four-year program by the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, along with Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. GG :o

    Man, I love how personal and excited you guys are about this. Just that is enough to commend in this day and age.

    I hope neural research marches on in time for you guys! It would be even more incredible to see if this can be hooked up to the basic life support systems of the body to see if it can run on it’s own.

    We’re excited about all of the possible uses of this prosthetic. Keep an eye out for more videos of our progress!

    finally these prosthetic arms have actual movement that look like a real arm. I was getting tired of seeing arms that look to robotic and stiff. This is just amazing!

    Many victims of crimes against humanity in Egypt, Libya, Syria and more desperately need prosthetic limbs. Many children as well as adults have lost hands, arms, feet, legs, and eyes due to crimes against humanity. If you can offer any help or advise please contact me.

    The Military Junta in Burma lays more land mines than any place in the world as part of their ethnic cleansing campaign against the many hill tribes along Burma’s border.
    MAE TAO CLINIC in Mae Sot Thailand is the world’s leader in caring for land mine victims.
    Please help Dr. Cynthia and her staff.
