In this episode of ASME TechCast we feature Ashley Kimbel, a senior at Grissom High School in Huntsville, Ala. She recently designed and built an impressive prosthetic foot for Kendall Bane, a former Marine who lost his leg due to the gunshot wounds he suffered in Afghanistan. In honor of her accomplishment, Siemens hosted a special event for her at the University of Alabama, Huntsville, where the city’s mayor, Tommy Battle, declared it Ashley Kimbel Day. She followed that up with a visit to the Today Show in New York City. Read the full story here and make sure to listen to more episodes of ASME TechCast at
