A team of researchers at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) demonstrated a type of peripheral interface called targeted muscle re-innervation (TMR). By rewiring nerves from amputated limbs, new interfaces allow for prosthetic control with existing muscles. Former Army Staff Sgt.

In this video, Lehman demonstrates simultaneous joint control of a prosthetic arm made possible by support from the RE-NET program.
