Bionicle Man – 1998



Some doctors and engineers are also developing prosthetic (bionic) limbs that use robotic mechanisms. Dr. David Gow, of the Prosthetics Research and Development Team at Princess Margaret Rose Orthopaedic Hospital, made the first bionic arm called the Edinburgh Modular Arm System (EMAS) in 1998. See also the news article from BBC NEWS ONLINE and the bionic arm web page of the Princess Margaret Rose Orthopaedic Hospital.
