This Bionic MiT Professor Builds Life-Changing, Cyborg Limbs For The Disabled

This is very interesting, and inspiring video.

Watch, and listen, to this professor explaining how biomechanics helped him when he had to have boths his legs amputated. His story is of re-defining his disability into ability, thanks to biomechanics. In fact, in some cases it made him MORE able – in climbing, for example. How AWESOME is that?

His talk is engaging, and funny. He really challenges the view we as society have of disabled people. This is just really COOL! Share this inspiring story around.
