New ‘E-Dermis’ Brings Sense of Touch, Pain to Prosthetic Hands

22 Mar New ‘E-Dermis’ Brings Sense of Touch, Pain to Prosthetic Hands

A team of robotic researchers from the Johns Hopkins Medical School and the National University of Singapore has found a way to end the “Phantom limb”problem.
Indeed, the Hopkins team has developed a prosthesis able to perceive and transmit the feeling of pain. With the help of electronic receptors that mimics the abilities of human skin (e-dermis) and neuron-like signaling, amputees would be able to feel the form of objects.

Also the prosthetic hand is programmed to automatically drop an object that has a high level of pain or is to sharp.

This could help amputees to avoid injuries and damaged their prosthesis.
