Prosthetic limb to be controlled by microchip: Agreement signed to create smart leg

enture."

The Russians bring impressive skills and equipment to the research effort, he says. Says Olen Thompson, "SILL got its start through the integrated efforts of the principal investigators, CRADA specialists, licensing specialists, patent attorneys and the DOEs Technology Partnership Office in Albuquerque.

They had many barriers to overcome but they stayed with it because they believed in the projects importance." DOE is funding the current effort with $1.5 million over two years. SOGI is expected to put up a matching amount in money, goods, and services.

Changing the world

Hurtado takes over project management of Sandias prosthetics program from recently retired Sandian Mort Lieberman, who originated it. Two years ago, an agreement he helped create between Sandia, Chelyabinsk 70, a Boston University professor and an Ohio prosthetics company produced an artificial foot that has received impressive reviews. Last year, work was started on an artificial knee.

Lieberman, who spoke at the Sept. 26, 2000, cooperative research and development (CRADA) signing, discussed the change in direction at the Russian nuclear lab and, to some extent, at Sandia (a national security laboratory) initiated by his work. Quoting anthropologist Margaret Mead, he said, "Never doubt that a small group of concerned citizens can change the world."
