Magnetomicrometry has exciting prospects for the control of wearable robotics, including prostheses and exoskeletons.
Two research papers published by Brown and MIT researchers focus on the possibility of employing improved muscle tracking technology.
Implantable without discomfort, these tiny magnets can provide continuous readings of muscle length for prosthetics and more.
Researchers at MIT are seeking FDA approval to test new technology in people with prosthetic limbs, which could make them easier to control.
Using a new technology, researchers hope to create better control systems for prosthetic limbs.
Muscle grafts could help amputees sense and control artificial limbs.
A whole new mode of communication between prosthesis and user.
A recent feature in Designboom highlights research conducted by the Biomechatronics group that describes magnetomicrometry.
System uses tiny magnetic beads to rapidly measure the position of muscles and relay that information to a bionic prosthesis.

We plan to use magnetomicrometry to provide natural control over prosthetic limbs
Meet the Labbers, which ran from 2016–2018, was an ongoing audio series that took listeners inside the Media Lab.
Congratulations to all who graduated during the 2019-2020 academic year!
An improved method for magnet tracking enables high-speed wireless tracking through various materials.
Sometimes you want to be able to see things that aren't visible.
