robotic arm moves for paralyzed woman-UPMCResearchers in the United States have developed a robotic arm controlled directly by thought with a level of agility closer than ever to a normal human limb.

Jan Scheuermann, 53, from Pittsburgh, who is paralyzed from the neck down, has been able to feed herself chocolate and move everyday items using a robotic arm directly controlled by her mind.

“It’s so cool,” said Scheuermann during a news conference. “I’m moving things. I have not moved things for about 10 years.”
