BiomedReports.Com is presenting a special report, complete with video, demonstrating a new bionic arm that can do everything from picking up a grape without smooshing it to tossing a ball to reaching for an item on a high shelf.

Researchers spent 30 months riffing off existing knowledge to develop a practical arm for veterans.

The goals were to keep its weight to no more than that of a human arm, and to avoid making it complicated by bells and whistles that a person would be unlikely to want or use.

But these arms aren't just for injured members of the military.

Scientists at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, have developed a surgical procedure to reassign nerves that once controlled the arm and hand you lost to your pectoral muscles. By reassigning these nerves, doctors can make it possible for people who have had upper-arm amputations to control their prosthetic devices by merely thinking about the action they want to perform. Once experimental, this innovative procedure is now available to the public.

During the video, you'll see a segment which shows patient Jesse Sullivan using his prosthetic arm in an occupational therapy session. Sullivan, 61, from Dayton, TN, demonstrates advanced, multi-degree control of the DEKA Research arm at The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. Sullivan, who lost his arms in an electrical accident in 2001, was the first person to receive the targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) procedure in 2001.

The full special report on the new bionic arms appears at the link below.
