Motorized prosthesis is an artificial medical device used to perform the functions of missing body parts due to factors such as trauma, congenital factors, or various other diseases. The concept of motorized prosthesis arises from the combination of biomedical engineering and neuroscience. The motorized prosthesis is based on brain-computed interface, to avail the biological functioning of missing body parts. Motorized prosthesis is a complex network of motors and cognitive modalities. These devices are made for supporting of autonomous nervous system functioning such as devices for bladder control. The motorized prosthesis are in research and development phase, and various technological advancements has been witnessed in developing a novelty product to support the normal functioning of the body. The motorized prosthesis are based on target muscle innervation (TMR) technology.
