Press for iWalk

Brooke Army Medical Center  (BAMC) will host a press conference at the Center for the Intrepid  (CFI) at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 18 to demonstrate the  PowerFoot BiOM by iWalk, a bionic lower leg system to restore lost muscle function of the lower limb in service members.

Hugh Herr can phone his ankles.

An associate professor at the MIT-Harvard Div. of Heath Sciences and Technology, he can do that because, after losing his legs 28 years ago, he refused to accept the state of the art in prosthetic technology.
