There are plenty of ways that a human being could lose their leg – a work or car accident, a sports-related injury, a congenital disease, etc – and these leg amputees’ quality of life has been slowly but surely improving over the recent decades. Recently, a cyber-physical system (CPS) has been developed that can be used to control artificial legs in a similar manner to an actual leg. The neural-machine interface (NMI) senses electromyographic (EMG) signals, and this sends control decisions to the artificial leg. Through positive results from multiple real-time experiments involving these NMI legs, engineers and doctors are looking forward to the potential of clinical application of these new artificial legs.
