'I was a one-sided person': THE DEKA Arm, a VA Research partnership with DoD
VA researchers join forces at the Manhattan VAMC to help a Veteran who lost his arm 40 years ago. The DEKA Arm is a joint collaboration between VA Research and the Department of Defense. The goal is to produce the world's most advanced prosthetic arm system to help improve Veterans' lives. This research will be highlighted during the 2012 VA Research Week, April 23-27.
