BY SAMANTHA MCCLENDON You're watching multisource tech news analysis from Newsy Androids of the future may be wearing a skin that can feel the touch of a butterfly. A Stanford University researcher recently introduced her human-like robot skin that is flexible, light-weight, solar powered, and can sense chemicals. CNN lays out its composition. “The skin is made of highly elastic rubber with electric sensors on the edges. The thin film of rubber is molded into a grid of tiny pyramids.” The skin can shrink and expand -- and some are already speculating what the future may hold. A writer for Fast Company says this new skin quote “...makes your meatbag covering look pathetic.” ASM International quotes inventor, Zhenan (Ji-nin) Bao -- who says the robot skin does go beyond what human skin can do. "You can imagine a robot hand that can be used to touch some liquid and detect certain markers or a certain protein that is associated with some kind of disease and the robot will be able to effectively say, 'Oh, this person has that disease...’” And as a writer for Popular Science speculates -- the potential uses go much further than that. “If it could be wired to human nerves, it could allow patients with prosthetics to gain back feeling in their missing limbs. It could also one day coat cars, or be worked into clothing such as soldiers’ uniforms, working simultaneously as a biosensor and solar power generator.” So from clothing to buildings, this robot skin won’t be limited to robots.

BY ALISON SCHUTZ ANCHOR ALISON ARCHER You're watching multisource health news analysis from Newsy. A twist of fate...a 13-year-old Ohio boy is back on the baseball mound after a surgery that left one of his legs turned backwards. At ten years old, Dugan Smith learned he had bone cancer in his leg. Cleveland’s WJW has details on the procedure doctors performed that allows him to stay active. REPORTER: “Dugan had a tumor the size of a softball on his thigh bone.” DUGAN: “I didn’t know if I was every going to be able to run again. I didn’t know if it was going to work. So there was 100 things going through my mind.” REPORTER: “Dugan endured months of chemotherapy for choosing a procedure that would cut off a portion of his leg and turn it 180 degrees.” The Review Times calls it “A whole new ballgame” and the Columbus Dispatch dons him “The comeback kid”... ..****menting on the procedure that allows Dugan’s calf to function as his thigh and his ankle to bend like his knee. A Review Times writer adds the procedure was a no-brainer for Dugan. “Had he not chosen rotationplasty, playing baseball again may have been just a pipe dream for Dugan Smith. But instead of sitting on the bench, the seventh grader donned his No. 13 jersey ... as pitcher and first basemen.” Dugan’s leg will continue to grow and he must do physical therapy up to three times a week. A Cleveland Plain Dealer blogger says the boy has come a long way since his odd procedure. “Dugan plays baseball and basketball, went skiing last week, and plans to go out for freshman football in the fall ... but the leg does look strange.” Dugan says he still hopes to fulfill his dream of being a Major League Baseball player - noting he’d be the first pitcher in the league with a prosthetic leg.

This is an interview with Dr. Thomas Stonecipher, MD, who is an Orthopedic Surgeon at The Everett Clinic. For a full biography of Dr. Stonecipher, please visit: *******thomaskstonecipher.everettclinic****/. Locomotion, activity, and physical function are really important things for a good quality of life. When a hip joint, a weight-bearing joint, a lower limb joint, becomes painful it can take a really big bite out of your ability to enjoy a quality of life. Some problems simply can’t be fixed in the sense that the condition can only be remedied by a prosthetic replacement rather than a surgical repair. In the context of a painful, arthritic, or degenerative joint, we fortunately now have a pretty good solution to hip replacement.

The Alfred Mann Foundation (AMF) today announced the first subject, a U.S. Marine, SSgt James Sides, as a recipient of its highly anticipated IMES System (implantable myoelectric sensor) – an experimental system that holds the promise of being the first minimally invasive, intuitive, multi-channel control system for prosthetics intended for long term use. The IMES System is currently being studied under the Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) regulations of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). AMF’s ongoing trial with injured veterans at the Walter Reed National Medical Military Center anticipates subjects intuitively operating three different prosthetic movements simultaneously: opening and closing the hand, rotating the wrist, and moving the thumb. Combining these three movements enables several grasps that are invaluable for performing everyday tasks.
