Transcript: Overall, Bionics have helped improve the lives of many patients. This is a bionic body part About 10% of Americans have artificial devices attached to their bodies or implanted inside them. Examples include Artificial Legs, Artificial Hearts, Pacemakers, and Glucometers. Bionics Bionics have helped replaced missing parts of someone or something's body for a long time. Their main purpose is to either replace or help a body part. Bionics: the study of mechanical systems that function like living organisms or parts of living organisms. That's about 31.89 million Americans The earliest examples have been dated back to the Egyptian times.
Transcript: 5. What need in your community does this biotechnology address? People that need an organ can get a bionic one, or if they need a limb. 6. How does this biotechnology currently affecting your community? Some people have prosthetic arms and legs to help them though everyday life. 7. How can this biotechnology affect the future of your community? People who have lost their legs will be able to walk again. 1. What is the purpose of the technique? The purpose of bionics is to help people do things that they couldn’t to before. 2. How does the biotechnology technique work? This technique works by adding a prosthetic limb to someone so that they could do more things independently. 3. What organisms are affected by the biotechnology technique? Humans will be the most affected by this biotech some animals such as dogs will also be affected by bionics. 4. How does this biotechnology technique have the potential to enhance human life. This can affect human life by helping out handicap people, so that they can then do things that they couldn’t do before. http://science.howstuffworks.com/bionic-arm.htm Bionics work by serving as a body part, such as a limb. The motor cortex in the brain is still sending out signals even if certain voluntary muscles are no longer available for control and, when doctors amputate a limb, they don't remove all of the nerves that once carried signals to that limb. So if somebody’s arm is gone, there are working nerve stubs that end in the shoulder and simply have nowhere to send their information. If those nerve endings can be redirected to a working muscle group, then when somebody thinks, "grab handle with hand," and the brain sends out the corresponding signals to the nerves that should communicate with the hand, those signals end up at the functioning muscle group instead of at the dead end of the shoulder. I chose bionics because it can help out society in very good ways, such as helping out the handicap. Bionics are used to help people do things that they couldn’t do before like people that lost a leg or hand/arm. With this biotech handicap people will be not be left out anymore and would be able to do things that they couldn’t do before. Bionics work by serving as a body part, such as a limb.

Traditional Prosthesis 3 Movements Closing in on a lifelike limb Modular Prosthetic Limb Nerves that once reached the lower arm are rerouted into other muscles. The electrodes placed on those muscles capture the brain's commands and relay them by wires in the prosthesis. New Vision The Bionic Hand Advantages Four years ago, a car accident took away Amanda Kitts' arm and her capacity of doing things that most of us take for granted, things like making a sandwich. "I felt lost", it´s what this teacher from Knoxville, Tennessee said to the writer Josh Fischman in one of the National Geographic magazine's article. Science fiction comes true Still the only device available to must amputees, the pincer hand prosthesis relies on cables moved by pressing levers on a harness with the chin or other arm. Eyelids stretched wide under anesthesia, Jo Ann Lewis, 79, received new hardware in and around her eyeball, which works with a computer to transmit imagery to her brain. Electronics circumvent damaged light-receptor cells and give the blind Texan back a vestige of vision-shimmering lines, vague shapes, washes of color. Obviously we're on the ground floor of this technology. Each dot on an array tacked to a patient's retina, is an electrode that sends visual stimuli to the optic nerve, visible as a white circle at far right. Built by the U.S. company Second Sight, the 0.8 centimeters wide array has 60 electrodes. An older mode had just 16. As with digital camera pixels, more electrodes capture more detail. The company is now developing implants with hundreds, even thousands, of electrodes. Disadvantages The Bionic Arm
Transcript: However, one of the trial’s limitations was its small size. In addition to this, it only examined the effects of the overnight closed-loop system compared with the standard pump over four periods of four weeks each. Longer-term studies examining the safety and effectiveness of this system in larger numbers of people with type 1 diabetes are now needed. pancreas Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience frequent urination, they will become increasingly thirsty and hungry. The body does not produce enough insulin for proper function, or the cells in the body do not react to insulin (insulin resistance).Diabetes is prevented by taking insulin injections. DONE BY :- DIABETES The study was carried out by researchers from the Universities of Cambridge, Sheffield and Southampton, and King’s College London. It was funded by Diabetes UK. The study was published in the peer-reviewed medical journal The Lancet. While the Mail Online’s reporting of the study is broadly accurate, its headline: “Artificial pancreas could help stem the diabetes epidemic: Device could help patients lead normal lives by stopping need for constant insulin” is potentially misleading on multiple levels. Firstly, “artificial pancreas” could be misinterpreted to mean that this is an artificial organ that is surgically transplanted into the person and can produce insulin to take the place of their own pancreas. In reality, the “closed-loop” insulin delivery system is designed to be worn outside of the body. Secondly, the “diabetes epidemic” is usually taken to mean type 2 diabetes, which is associated with lifestyle factors such as being obese and lack of exercise. It is true that some people with type 2 diabetes can go on to need insulin; however, this particular study looked at people with type 1 diabetes. The pancreas is a glandular organ in the digestive system and endocrine system of vertebrates. In humans it is located in the abdominal cavity behind the stomach. It is an endocrine gland producing several important hormones, including insulin, glucagon, somatostatin , and pancreatic polypeptide which circulate in the blood IMAGES TO UNDERSTAND BIONIC PANCREAS WHAT IS BIONIC PANCREAS HISTORY BIONIC PANCREAS Conclusion Symptoms of diabetes It can be challenging trying to keep insulin delivery at the right level in order to control blood sugar levels within the normal range, while avoiding blood sugar becoming too low (hypoglycemia), particularly overnight. The device improved blood sugar control overnight – importantly, it was not associated with hypoglycemic episodes. BIONIC PANCREAS Diabetes, often referred as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. STEPS OF BIONIC PANCREAS People with type 1 diabetes require lifelong insulin, as their body does not produce any. Insulin is a hormone that plays a key role in regulating the body’s blood sugar levels. In a new study, the safety and effectiveness of a “closed-loop” insulin delivery system has been assessed. Compared to a standard insulin pump, where the insulin delivery is programmed, the closed-loop system continuously measures sugar levels and automatically makes fine adjustments to insulin delivery in response. In effect, it acts like an artificial pancreas. Introduction Because of this difficulty, a device to help simplify the treatment of type 1 diabetes would be welcomed. The device in question, the closed loop insulin delivery system, automatically makes fine adjustments to insulin delivery in response to the glucose level being continuously measured. Pancreas It can be a challenge for people with type 1 diabetes to keep insulin delivery at the right level, which is necessary to keep blood sugar levels within the normal range. Avoiding periods of hypoglycemia can be a challenge, particularly overnight. A further challenge is that the symptoms of type 1 diabetes usually develop during childhood. This means that children, especially teenagers, can often find the need to stick to a particular treatment “regime” and regularly monitor their blood sugar quite restrictive. However, without such treatment recommendations, they can be at risk of complications, such as hypoglycaemia. Bionics (also known as bionical creativity engineering) is the application of biological methods and systems found in nature to the study and design of engineering systems and modern technology.

Transcript: What organisms are affected by the biotechnology technique? The need this biotechnology addresses in my community is anyone who is missing a limb or an organ (e.g. an eye) can replace it with bionics. What is the purpose of the technique? The purpose of bionics is to replace missing limbs or organs. They are used to relplace legs, arms, and eyes. How does the biotechnology work? This biotechnology is currently affecting my community by allowing people to continue their lives however they would like without any obstacles from not having a certain limb or organ. Evelyn Castillo Biology Period 1 May 5, 2014 Modern prosthetic limbs have newer materials, such as carbon-fiber composites and advanced plastics. The materials make the prosthetic limbs lighter and stronger. Today’s advanced prosthetics are made more controllable because of technology, making adaption automatic on certain tasks (gripping or walking).

They can help the patient hold a job and lead a normal life. Its a major area of research because its so vast and there is always room for improvement. Also because the arms are so complex a huge amount of research needs to go into planning them and making sure they function well. The research has improved dramatically over the last 5-10 years but we still have areas to improve in. For example we could make the myoelectric arm more sensitive so a wider range of people could use it. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/11/09/video/ http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article4628786.ece Pros and cons Cons -slow reflexes -expensive ($3238.06) -requires maintenance such as battery charging and replacement -not waterproof -you have to produce strong enough EMG for the arm pick up Pros: -the arm is moveable -can control with myoelectric pulses -light -sensitive enough to hold an egg -has a grip strength of 140N (30 lb) -has 14 programmed grips The study of mechanical systems that function like living organisms or parts of living organisms
