In 1996, Vita-More innovated the concept of a whole body prosthesis. With a team of experts (Marvin Minsky (AI), Hans Moravec (robotics) and Ralph Merkle (nanotechnology), she designed the first future body design as a wearable system. This is known as [Primo Posthuman]], a vision for a highly modified transhuman body.

In 2015, Natasha developed a scientific breakthrough by proving that long-term memory can be sustained after cryonic suspension and reviving. The C. elegans nematode was the subject of this experiment, which paper is published and received more than 16,000 downloads the first month of publication.
