Look at the people in the photos. What do they have in common? Talk about your ideas.

It sounds like science fiction, but scientists can replace human body parts with machines. This idea is a part of science called bionics.
Bionics, in general, is the study of living systems to solve engineering problems. For example, scientists have studied how the eye works in order to design better cameras. Scientists have studied how birds fly and improved airplane design. Bionic scientists study the work of body parts and use this information to design artificial parts.
Bionics is used successfully in the area of artificial limbs. Scientists are replacing clumsy prosthetic limbs with artificial limbs. Scientists control those limbs electronically. These artificial limbs behave almost like real ones.
Another amazing development within the field of bionics is the artificial eye. That helps blind people see. Similarly, artificial ears send sound signals to the brain and hearing-impaired people regain some of their hearing.
Today, scientists can replace limbs, organs, and even skin by artificial ones. Scientists believe that, thanks to bionics, they will replace many more parts of the human body one day.
How are bionic scientists helping people who have physical problems? Read the text again and tick (✓) the correct column.
