Luke Arm - Next Generation Prosthetic Arm
A video I posted last August, showed Dean Kamen talking about the work his company was doing creating the next-generation prosthetic arm for Iraq War veterans missing either one arm or two (bi-lateral amputees). According to IEEE Spectrum, work on the Luke Arm - as Kamen has named it - is progressing quickly, and may soon be ready for clinical trials. Here's a video from IEEE Spectrum showing the latest prototype in action.
