How is gaming technology helping amputees use prosthetic limbs?

Tuesday 6 March 2018 • Reading time: 1 minute

Our researchers have developed virtual reality software with the potential to improve the way the NHS trains patients to use prosthetic limbs forever

Modern electric prosthetic limbs are very expensive. Patients are given hours of training before they get them, but it can be difficult to take to a prosthetic and many go unused.

New technology developed by our Virtual Reality Prosthetics team offers patients an opportunity to 'see' the limb and adjust to using it. The technology makes it more likely that patients would take to their bionic prosthetics – which brings life-changing benefits to amputees.
