Rock climbing with a EMG-controlled prosthesis

Promising video of a soldier with an amputated arm climbing a wall using the new DEKA Arm System, the first prosthetic arm to perform multiple, simultaneous powered movements controlled by electromyogram signals. The arm can translate signals into ten separate powered movements and is the same shape and weight as an adult arm.
