Bionic leg undergoing clinical trials

A “bionic” leg designed for people who have lost a lower leg is undergoing clinical trials sponsored by the US Army. The researchers hope the leg will be able to learn the patients nerve signal patterns and be able to move in response to the patient’s own muscles and nerves.
