New tool for designing prosthetic limbs


Today’s Video of the Day from the National Science Foundation describes ongoing research which aims to improve the design of prosthetic limbs. 

A team at Stanford University has developed a new tool that makes it possible to try out many different designs without actually having to construct the hardware.

The researchers are experimenting with robotic prosthetic devices that can sense an individual’s movement and help to correct it based on the surrounding environment.
