By MICHELLE JANAYE NEALYTHE ASSOCIATED PRESSCHICAGO The metal on Zac Vawter's bionic leg gleamed as he climbed the 103 floors of Chicago's iconic Willis Tower, becoming the first person ever to complete the task wearing a mind controlled prosthetic limb.Vawter, who lost his right leg in a motorcycle accident, put the smart limb on public display for the first time during an annual stair climbing charity event called "SkyRise Chicago" hosted by the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, where he is receiving treatment."Everything went great," said Vawter at the event's end. "The prosthetic leg did its part, and I did my part."The leg is designed to respond to electrical impulses from muscles in his hamstring. When Vawter thought about climbing the stairs, the motors, belts and chains in his leg synchronized the movements of its ankle and knee.The computerized prosthetic limb, like something from a sci fi film, Prada Bag Price 2017

or thought controlled prosthetic arms have been available for a few years, thanks to pioneering work done at the Rehabilitation Institute. Knowing leg amputees outnumber people who have lost arms and hands, the Chicago researchers are focusing more on lower limbs. If a bionic hand fails, a person drops a glass of water. If a bionic leg fails, a person falls down stairs.This event Prada Shoulder Bag With Chain

was a research project for us, said Joanne Smith, the Rehabilitation Institute's CEO."We were testing the leg under extreme conditions. Very few patients who will use the leg in the future will be using it for this purpose. From that perspective, its performance was beyond measure," Smith added.To prepare for his pioneering climb, Vawter said, he practiced on a small escalator at a gym, while researchers spent months adjusting the technical aspects of the leg to ensure that it would respond to his thoughts.When Vawter goes home to Yelm, Wash., where he lives with his wife and two children, the experimental leg will stay behind in Chicago. Researchers will continue to refine its steering.

"We need to make rock solid devices, more than a research prototype.""A lot of people say that losing a leg is like losing a loved one," said Vawter. "You go through a grieving process. You establish a new normal in your life and move on. Today was a big event. It's just neat to be a part of the research and be a part of RIC."Nearly, 3,000 climbers participated in the annual charity event. Participants climbed about 2,100 steps to the Willis Tower's SkyDeck level to raise money for the institute's rehabilitation care and research.
