Moscow-based company Motorica, engaged in the development of functional upper limb prostheses, is creating a scientific and technical unit that will develop invasive (implantable) technologies.
In particular, Motorica pays attention to the problems of prostheses sensitivity. The company, together with the FEFU medical center and the Skoltech Center for Neurobiology and Neurorehabilitation, performed the first operation in Russia to implant electrodes into a peripheral nerve to establish a sensitive feedback loop of hand prostheses with the human nervous system.
Based on the results of the first phase of practical research, the company intends to obtain data for the development of its own line of invasive electrodes and stimulants for use in prosthetics. Motorica plans to “significantly expand the company's activities and bring Russia to a leading position in the field of invasive technologies,” explained Ilya Chekh, General Director of Motorica.
