Turning Hope Into Reality — Research to Restore Veterans' Abilities

VA Research is dedicated to restoring injured Veterans to their greatest possible functional capacity in their families, communities, and work places. For those who lost limbs from combat traumas or because of complications such as diabetes, VA researchers are designing and building lighter, more lifelike prostheses using leading-edge technologies such as robotics, tissue engineering, and nanotechnology, and are studying how to best match available prosthetic components to the needs of amputees.
