- Michal Prywata, left, and Thiago Caires have started a company called Bionik Laboratories Inc. to take the AMO Arm and other biomedical technologies to market.
A prosthetic arm controlled by its user’s thoughts, invented by two Toronto students, is competing for funding to take it to market.
The Artificial Muscle-Operated (AMO) Arm created by Ryerson University biomedical engineering students Michal Prywata and Thiago Caires has a headset that picks up electrical signals from the brain.
“When you think about a certain movement, the arm moves accordingly,” Prywata told CBC‘s As it Happens Monday.
