A Bionic Spine is a spine body part replacement. It provides 100% efficiency.
Bionic spines can be purchased from traders or crafted with 15 plasteel and 4 Advanced components on the fabrication bench after Bionic Replacements has been researched. They require a crafting skill of 8.
Installing a bionic spine requires 2 medicine.
It prevents the "bad back" condition but otherwise provides no other statistical bonus.
As it does not provide additional efficiency, it's best as a replacement body part. Bionic spines can cure colonists with scarred or shattered spines, as well as the "bad back" condition from old age. These conditions are otherwise only curable with Luciferium or a Healer mech serum.
The bionic spine can also be useful to give to transhumanists for a mood buff without affecting any stats.
