Bionic Knee Hits the Market

An AI-powered bionic knee is now publicly available.

"Within those 60 steps the patient has to vary their speed a little bit, the knee starts learning how they move, how they walk, and at that point figures out how to adjust itself with the person," Warren said.

What makes the Rheo-Knee different is that it's the first to use artificial intelligence -- tiny sensors that analyze the knee 1,000 times per second allowing it to adjust to any step or misstep.

Current unit runs about $30,000.

Wow, that's pretty cheap honestly, especially for bionics!
