September 2020 – New DOD-funded research: Prosthesis with Osseointegrated Bidirectional Neural Interface

The UW BADGER Lab received a new grant from the Department of Defense to further develop the Two-Axis ‘Daptable Ankle (TADA) prosthesis (see Research page) and combine it with prosthesis-embedded sensors and a bidirectional neural interface. The work is in collaboration with the UW-Madison Department of Surgery, with contributions from Biomedical Engineering and Veterinary Medicine and researchers at the University of Utah and Duke University.
