    CHIMP DRC Tasks Fast

    Published on May 15, 2014

    Peeling potatoes has long been considered a chore in the Army reserved for a Soldier who had screwed up. For an amputee who has just regained use of his second hand, however, a task like peeling carrots takes on a unique magic.

    Mr. Fred Downs is a Veteran of the Vietnam War who lost his left arm to a landmine. He helped DARPA test out the DEKA Arm System and offered valuable feedback on how to refine it to best serve amputees. The arm was developed under DARPA's Revolutionizing Prosthetics program.

    On May 9, 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the DEKA Arm, meaning that the developer, DEKA Integrated Solutions, can now pursue manufacturing and commercial opportunities to bring the arm to market.

    This milestone represents just part of DARPA's commitment to standing by and enabling Service members.

    The LUKE Arm: Fulfilling a Promise to Wounded Warriors

    Published on Dec 22, 2016

    The holiday season is bringing high-tech offerings for U.S. war veterans this year in the form of sophisticated bionic arms developed under the direction of DARPA's Revolutionizing Prosthetics program. In a ceremony December 22 at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) in Bethesda, Md., Justin Sanchez, Director of DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office, delivered the first two advanced “LUKE” arms from a new production line—shiny evidence that the fast-track DARPA research effort has completed its transition into a commercial enterprise. As part of that transition process, DARPA is collaborating with WRNMMC to make the advanced prostheses available to Service members and veterans who are rehabilitating after suffering upper-limb loss.

    The LUKE Arm ("Life Under Kinetic Evolution") is the first commercially available FDA-approved robotic prosthetic arm. It is manufactured by Mobius Bionics LLC of Manchester, N.H.
