DARPA’s LUKE Arm Given to Veterans

The LUKE arm is a prosthetic arm that can make life a lot easier for amputees. It has a simple control system for dexterous arm and hand movement. Users will be able to control multiple joints simultaneously.

This bionic arm has the same size, weight, shape, and grip strength compared to an adult human arm. It allows users to pick objects and get things done with more independence. The arm can be controlled using EMG electrodes and foot-mounted sensors.

The good news is two veterans have received the new generation of this prosthetic limb recently. Hopefully, the tech will be made available to even more people in the future.
