Amputation, muscle weakness, and nerve damage can make it difficult to perform simple daily tasks. In this project, we are developing a minimally-invasive technology using magnetic beads to track muscle lengths in real time. This new technology can provide natural, reliable control of prostheses, exoskeletons and stimulated muscles.
