Kinea Design Featured in National Geographic Magazine
National Geographic Magazine‘s January 2010 cover story entitled “Merging Man and Machine” features new biomechatronic technology that Kinea Design developed for DARPA's Revolutionizing Prosthetics 2009 (RP2009) Program.
Kinea Design developed a number of multisensory technology innovations for the Modular Prosthetic Limb (MPL) that will give an arm amputee more natural sensation and control of his or her artificial limb. (Link to online story).
The Modular Prosthetic Limb was successfully demonstrated on December 11th for representatives from DARPA, APL, NIST, NIH, USAMRMC, and the VA.
Kinea Design engineers are featured in the "On Assignment" column of the January issue, which is slated for newsstand availability starting December 29.
