Neuroprosthetics are cutting-edge biomedical devices that bring ability back to people's lives who have suffered neurological illness or physical injury. They also have the potential to enhance human ability as this technology develops in the future! with this kit, students can build their own neuroprosthetic cyborg hands, which they can then control with the electrical activity of their nervous system!.

This kit is a powerful, hands-on way to teach many cross-cutting concepts, like anatomy, physiology, engineering, biology, and of course neuroscience. Students can better understand how their nerves, muscles, tendons, and pulleys work together to control their hands. Students will be the engineer, designing a real prosthetic, and then brainstorm ways that this tool and this technology could literally help people.

This lab is designed with the intent that the student will keep and take-home their cyborg hand after building it. It is not intended for students to disassemble and rebuild.

Ordering information: This is not a stand alone kit, it requires either a claw bundle, or a brain-machine interface classroom kit.
