The Bionic Man

Bioengineering research supported by NIBIB is leading to advances that were previously known only in science fiction.

The Bionic Man is an interactive explorable 3D model that illustrates cutting edge research in the field of bioengineering. Banyan and NIBIB created The Bionic Man to educate the public about breakthroughs in research and to inspire the next generation of students in bioengineering.

Fourteen breakthroughs of prosthetics and therapies are illustrated through the explorable interactive 3-D model:

  1. Robotic Leg Prosthesis
  2. Cartilage Regeneration
  3. Blood Clot Emulator
  4. Artificial Kidney
  5. Microneedle Patch
  6. Glucose-Sensing Contacts
  7. Wireless Brain-Computer Interface
  8. Synthetic Tissue Adhesive
