Prosthetic arm can be controlled with mind using Bluetooth
April 30, 2017
Johan Baggerman is the first person in the Netherlands who has received a prosthetic arm that can be controlled with his mind.
The special arm is directly attached to the bone and can be controlled using a Bluetooth bracelet that receives signals.
Three surgeries were performed to fix the artificial arm to Baggerman's body. The surgeries connected his nerves to the artificial arm and still allows for the arm to be removed easily.
The process takes time and the three surgeries were done between 2013 and 2016, while the final stages were reached recently.
