So how do they do it?

‘Pioneering’ arm for 7/7 victim

“The wonderful technology in Kira is the ability to put a piece of metal inside the body, then put it outside and stop it from becoming infected, and also allow the piece of metal to incorporate into the bone,” he told BBC One’s Breakfast.

‘Fabulous’ development

Mr Cannon – from the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, north London – said getting muscle and skin to grow onto the metal was a revolutionary technique.

I’m hoping they’ve got a paper in the works, because something that crosses the skin without getting infected (much less bonding to tissue and bone as well) is pretty much perfect for a long list of treatments. Everyone who uses a needle on a regular basis could have their lives changed by this.
