Freedom Innovations refines robotic leg

Irvine, CA-based Freedom Innovations announced in October that it will partner with Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago to commercialize a first-generation prosthesis that uses control systems that mimic the human leg’s power and gait. The New England Journal of Medicine e-published a case report on September 25 on the use of a prototype, intended for above knee amputees, that decodes electromyographic signals from autologous nerve transfers with a pattern-recognition algorithm and combines them with data from sensors on the prosthesis to interpret the patient’s intended movements.
