Summary:
Follows inventor Dean Kamen and correspondent Joanne Colan as they explore the emerging technologies being developed to tackle the most daunting global challenges of today. Now more than ever, there is a great need for limb replacement. More than a thousand soldiers have returned home from Iraq and Afghanistan missing an arm or a leg—a higher percentage than in any previous conflict. But new advancements in prosthetics are changing the definition of what it means to be disabled.
