Neural Interfacing Architecture Enables Enhanced Motor Control And Residual Limb Functionality Postamputation

Neural interfacing architecture enables enhanced motor control and residual limb functionality postamputation

Despite advancements in prosthetic technologies, patients with amputation today suffer great diminution in mobility and quality of life. We have developed a modified below-knee amputation (BKA) procedure that incorporates agonist–antagonist myoneural interfaces (AMIs), which surgically preserve and couple agonist– antagonist muscle pairs for the subtalar and ankle joints.
