A quadriplegic patient used prosthetics to feed himself. His brain was the guide

Here's a look at the work at the intersection of brain-computer interface, robotics and AI taking place at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab. When there’s dessert involved, most people cut a sweet treat and eat...

Robotic Trunk Support Assists Those with Spinal Cord Injury

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xu_rLnt4W6k Columbia engineers invent a robotic trunk-support-trainer to retrain patients with spinal cord injury to sit more stably and gain an expanded active sitting workspace Video illustrating how the Trunk-Support Trainer (TruST), a robotic device invented...

The Lancet Neurology: Pioneering study suggests that an exoskeleton for tetraplegia could be feasible

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GyJBBB8O_M A 4-limb robotic system controlled by brain signals helped a tetraplegic man to move his arms and walk using a ceiling-mounted harness for balance A four-limb robotic system controlled by brain signals helped a tetraplegic...

The mind-reading robotic hand that lets quadriplegic people grasp everyday objects

Scientists have developed a robotic interface which could help to restore fine hand movements in paraplegics. By combining an electrode cap with an exoskeleton worn over the fingers, the device translates brain signals to hand...

New $5M Grant to Support Robotics Research for Spinal Cord Injury Patients

Newswise — Balance is an essential component of daily life, something many of us take for granted. But not everyone can. In the United States alone, there are about 300,000 people living with spinal...
