Caption: Robotic knee. Time-exposure image of researcher Hugh Herr testing a robotic prosthetic knee. The knee reproduces the force response movements of a human knee more accurately than standard prostheses. It therefore enables its wearer to walk more naturally even over difficult terrain. Herr, a double amputee, is one of the developers of the knee. He works at the Leg Lab of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA.
