Video on the first patient with below-elbow amputation implanted with osseo-neuromuscular interfaces (e-OPRA).
Electrodes implanted in nerves and muscles allow for the extraction of control information and to provide intuitive sensory feedback (”feeling”).
Osseointegrated implants allow for direct skeletal attachment of the prosthesis, while also serving as safe, long-term stable, and bidirectional communication interfaces to the implanted electrodes.
Patient initially uses a virtual prosthesis during recovery from implantation, prior receiving the dexterous and sensorized hand prosthesis to be used in daily life.

This technology was developed by Integrum AB and Chalmers University of Technology (@ChalmersBNL), as part of the European project DeTOP (http://www.detop-project.eu).
