Implantable motion sensor may guide prosthetic limbs

An implantable device that mimics the motion sensors in smartphones may one day provide key input to control prosthetic devices. The thin, flexible sensor, developed by researchers at Tel Aviv University, uses a non-toxic polymer in place of silicon and is about the height and width of a postage stamp. "If the printing processes really do allow for mass production of polymer devices, then we will be looking at the possibility of devices so cheap that they can even be disposable," said Leeya Engel, one of the Tel Aviv University researchers.
