Amazing developments are being made each day in the possibilities for those with limb loss. Dr. Kuiken has been renowned for his research in developing a surgical technique called Targeted Muscle Reinnervation(TMR). With TMR it is possible to take the residual nerves in an amputated limb and transfer them to spare muscle and skin in or near the limb.

Dr. Kuiken is currently the Director of the Center for Bionic Medicine at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
