#Flash: More Precise Control of Prosthetic Limbs By Using Sm
MIT researchers tested a new technique called magnetomicrometry (MM) on animals and found that it can provide fast and reliable muscle measurements. Within the next few years, they plan to test the method on persons who have had their limbs amputated. They can accurately measure the length of a muscle as it contracts by inserting microscopic magnetic beads into muscle tissue, and this measurement can be relayed to a robotic prosthesis in milliseconds.
