Notes on Case 503729:

Boy aged approx 8 years old, currently at Boston CIty Hospital in ICU, coma. Car accident on 4th of July. Passenger in back seat of car. Parents in front seats didn’t make it. Boy not been conscious to know situ. with parent.s Boy has life threatening injuries – loss of left side – upper arm and leg – mid-femur, broken ribs, punctured lung, lacerations to the face.
HaptAI one of the companies asked to submit care plan for prosths for the boy (name not known).
Need to consider age, growth, size, weight. Work on bio integration of limbs – osteointegration may be possible – too early to tell.
On team to draw up plan for nano neural integration.
Big job!

Notes on Case 503729:

HaptAI won contract to build boy’s prosths – left arm and leg. Trial neural mesh integration with prosths – work on sensory control between cerebral cortex, osteointegration, to prosth.
Devise a way to ‘upload’ code to brain / integration / device (design team).
Code team keep working on n. mesh. Jack, our team leader, meeting with neurosurgeons at Boston City Hospital, Prosth team working with hospital surgeons for osteo connection.

Saw boy for first time. Not up close but only behind ICU glass. He’s awake. Not sure what he knows about what happened to him. He was with nurses and a man in uniform (family?) but the boy wasn’t speaking.
His injuries look catastrophic. It was hard to look at him but must be even harder to be him. Poor kid.
The design team couldn’t get in to his room to look at his head/neck for the neural mesh hardware they’re developing to insert into him. The prosth team have had better luck with access. They must seem like a ray of hope to the kid. I won’t forget his face as he lay there on the bed – blank, just blank. Maybe he’s on lots of painkillers. I can’t even imagine what must be going through his mind. Does he know about his parents yet? How is he coping with losing his arm and leg? Devastating.

So this is a neural mesh strand that will form one of the thousands of connectors between the prosthetic arm and leg and the neural mesh in Jonathan’s brain. A port is created in the back of the neck; the neural mesh is uploaded into the brain stem and allowed to form in the brain. From there the neural mesh connect to the nerves and muscles of the arm and leg are coded and allowed to integrate between the human side and prosthetic side.

Are you still awake? Just kidding – I love this stuff, it’s why I became a programmer.

Here’s a picture of the port as well. This guy was an early prototype adopter but this is basically what it will look like. There have been years and years of research on this and HaptAI cracked the whole neural mesh thing so there is a link between the brain and whatever technology is needed. In this case we’ll be connecting Jonathan and programming his neural mesh through a V-Z.
