Arm Prosthetics and Leg Prosthetics
In a high voltage accident Christian Kandlbauer lost both his arms and was fitted with a myoelectric DynamicArm® on his right side. On his left side, Christian was fitted with the DynamicArm® TMR which, until now, was considered science fiction. This prosthetic is controlled with his mind by simply moving his phantom arm in his mind.
The prototype was successfully tested and developed into a mind-controlled arm prosthesis. Presently, the design offers three joints with an extraordinarily high degree of autonomy and independence in everyday life. This means that Christian Kandlbauer was able to return to work in an auto repair shop and live without the assistance of others.
Unfortunately, Christian Kandlbauer passed away in a traffic accident on his way to work in October of 2010. His participation in the use of the DynamicArm technology has created a solid foundation for the continuation of this technological project that may benefit countless amputees in the future.
