Bionic Arm

Though the adoption of bionic limbs may be a few years off in the distance, it's always exciting to see researchers improve adaptive technology solutions.

Despite being around for a while, the technology hasn't advanced much due to the challenge of creating intuitive control systems for daily living activities.

"SFU researchers are working with paralympic skier Danny Letain to design a new control system for one of the world's most advanced bionic hands, promising a more intuitive experience for upper limb amputees."

The limb can actually predict the user's intentions in real time.

This is an example of high-tech adaptive technology, which is often very expensive. On the other end of the spectrum, you have solutions like our affordable universal cuff.
