The Six Million Dollar Arm

GORDON, DEBRA

Neurology Now . 5(3):26-27,31, May/June 2009.

Just 23 years old and five months out of the Marines, Claudia Mitchell lost her left arm in a motorcycle accident. Jason Koger (left) lost both arms in an electrical accident. Today, they can move their prosthetic arms in complex ways—and in real time—just by thinking about it. These new “bionic” arms are the product of decades of work by Todd Kuiken, M.D., Ph.D., a physiatrist and biomechanical engineer.
