Prosthetics / Bionics

The use of prosthetics and bionics for humans dramatically increases the quality of life for people all over the world. Prosthetics involve artificial limbs and organs. Bionics are similar to prosthetics, but these mechanical parts are created to be as good as, or even better functioning, than a person's original limb or organ.

How Prosthetic Eyes Work?

In the past, when someone lost his eye, he would have to wear a patch to cover the damaged eye. However prosthetic eyes can restore the look of having a real eye. Advancements in bionic eyes have made it possible for blind patients to have partial eyesight.

Robotic Prosthetics – It is NOT Science Fiction!

Today’s manufacturers of robotic prosthetics have made great and advanced inroads into the concept of replacement limbs. In many instances, the latter have created them to an extent when they now not only look realistic, but can actually be made to react in a natural and lifelike fashion.

Bionics in Medicine

In the last article we mentioned how Bionics work and how they are being applied to everyday situations – this article involves the extraordinary work being done with Bionics in medicine.


This article introduces the idea of bionics. More than just science fiction, bionics is a technology with both current and future real world applications.

The Future of Bone Tissue Engineering

The goal of bone tissue engineering is to grow new bones, cartilage and teeth that are fully functional and have the ability to regenerate like natural healthy bone. Researchers are working on engineering bone that will replace and repair degenerated or injured bone.
