Technology offers hope of better bionic legs

Scientists say they’re making progress toward developing a motorized artificial lower leg that automatically adjusts to changes in movement, such as from walking to using stairs.

Currently, powered prosthetics are available for the arm, knee, ankle and foot, but not for the length of leg from knee to foot. The technology described in a new study aims to use electronic signals from the user’s brain to control the knee-to-foot prosthesis.
