A team of researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI),
Massachusetts, will receive $1 million in federal and state grants
to develop a new working alliance, called the Center for
Neuroprosthetics, within the facilities of WPI’s Bioengineering
Institute (BEI). The center’s purpose will be to advance the
critical development of neuroprostheticsnext-generation prostheses
that could be permanently implanted and perform most of the
movements and functions of natural limbs.
