iWalk, a Cambridge start-up that has spent the past five years working on an advanced prosthetic foot, raised an additional $15 million last month; the new funding should be announced later this week.

The Centre for the Intrepid at Brooke Army Medical Centre, US, recently announced the preliminary results indicating that a new bionic foot called the  PowerFoot BiOM has clinically shown to replace lost muscle function, allowing amputees to walk with normal metabolic rate and speed.

Wounded warriors in San Antonio are the first to try out a new kind of prosthetic leg. These amputees are walking with ease thanks to new technology.

Today at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston, the Center for the Intrepid announced preliminary results indicating that the PowerFoot BiOM by iWalk allows leg amputees to walk at normal metabolic cost thus allowing an amputee to walk normally.
