The NIH’s Bionic Man site helps viewers visually explore some of the latest bioengineering creations from research funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. From prosthetics to artificial kidneys, these technologies are changing lives now and in the future.

Some of the technologies illustrated, along with videos, include implantable sensors for prosthesis control, a robotic leg prosthesis, flexible electrodes that record brain activity, microneedle patches, glucose-sensing contact lenses, a tongue drive system for wheelchair or computer use, an artificial kidney, and more.
