In the UK, began clinical trials of bionic prostheses
Company Open Bionics with the UK National Health Department started testing their prostheses at Bristol Hospital. The developers have provided for testing artificial limbs for children of different ages and adults to help test development engineers. The tests will last six months, and if everything goes well, bionic prostheses Open Bionics will provide all medical institutions of the country.
The average cost of a conventional robotic arm Open Bionics is five thousand British pounds, it can be printed for the day of 3D-printers and precisely adjust the size of a patient.
In addition, the company provides children with the opportunity to choose something really cool - in stock Open Bionics has a robotic arm of Iron Man, prosthesis, designed as "Star Wars" and the maiden version, inspired by the Disney cartoon "The Cold Heart". Previously, developers have recreated Adam Jensen prosthesis, the main character of the game Deus Ex.
Unfortunately, children's prostheses are not as sophisticated as other "more mature" counterparts, but they are very beautiful and I like kids. Options for adults can cost up to 60 thousand pounds.
