Two persons with tetraplegia were able to reach for and grasp objects in three-dimensional space with robotic arms that they controlled directly with brain activity. They used the BrainGate neural interface computer, an investigational device currently being studied under an IDE. One participant used the computer to serve herself coffee for the first time since becoming paralyzed nearly 15 years ago.
