Player description

After losing his own legs in an accident, Dr. Hugh Herr of MIT moved into the area of prosthetics, eventually creating powered foot-ankle prostheses with multiple tendon-like actuators controlled by multiple onboard computers. These advanced prosthetic limbs may one day enable people to exceed the capabilities of their natural body parts. This technology is the winner of the Mechanical Engineering Emerging Technology Award in Bioengineering.
