How scaffolding clips can help people with disabilities walk and talk
More than a dozen people with spinal cord injuries have now taken part in a video demonstration of scaffolding, an innovative technology used in the construction of prosthetic limbs.
The video shows a person holding a large piece of scaffold.
The person then walks up to the scaffold and holds it up with both hands, which is a feat in itself.
The scaffold clips into place on the person’s hand, allowing the person to walk and move.
The project is part of a collaboration between the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the U.S. Department of Defense.
The demonstration was conducted by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, and the University at Buffalo, with the assistance of researchers at other institutions.
This is not the first time that scaffolding has been used for this type of demonstration.
In the past, scientists have used it to create prosthetic arms and legs for people with paralysis.
In one case, a person with a rare spinal cord injury was able to walk, talk and use a wheelchair.
A scaffold that clips into position with both thumbs is used to create a wheelchair for someone with spinal stenosis, or spinal deformity, by an instructor.
The researchers say they hope this demonstration will encourage other scientists to look at scaffolding as an alternative to a prosthetic limb.
The scaffold clipart clipart video was filmed at the New England Scaffolding Center at the UBC, the University Health Network of BC, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), and the National Physical Laboratory of the United States Department of Energy.
The video was produced by the New York-based video company iVox.
The National Institutes and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) are developing technologies to aid people with physical disabilities, and scaffolding technology has been shown to improve their mobility.
A prosthetic arm with a full set of hands is made from scaffolding materials and can be used to help people control an object.
The videos have been shown at the 2017 TED conference in San Francisco, the 2016 TEDxConferences in Berlin, the 2017 DARPA GenCon conference in Boston, and at DARPA’s CyberDevCon conference.
