How to make bionic limbs (literally) very cool
WiredEmily Graczyk, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, discussed her research showing that providing sensory feedback helps prosthesis wearers feel more confident and comfortable interacting with others and makes their artificial limbs feel more like a part of themselves. “We feel things as more pleasant and more comforting when they’re at body temperature,” she said.
