Unrivalled control of a robotic arm has been achieved using a paralysed woman’s thoughts, a US study says.

Jan Scheuermann, who is 53 and paralysed from the neck down, was able to deftly grasp and move a variety of objects just like a normal arm.

Brain implants were used to control the robotic arm, in the study reported in the Lancet medical journal.

Experts in the field said it was an “unprecedented performance” and a “remarkable achievement”.
