The researchers of University College of London have developed a technology that allows artificial limbs to be directly attached to the human skeleton with help of a new device. It reduces the risk of any infection. The Journal of Anatomy will publish the detail of the research. It will help to bionic limbs, which are controlled by the central nervous system. The process is named as Intraosseous Transcutaneous Amputation Prosthesis (ITAP),that involves securing a titanium rod directly into the bone. This technology might be used for forefingers and thumbs, upper and lower limb replacements. The risk of infection because of passing bacteria from the external limb through the rod to the bone is avoided because the skin tissue meshes around the rod to form a seal during this process.
