Hugh Herr, leader of the Center for Extreme Bionics at MIT, redefines what it means to be disabled in this inspirational talk at HSM Brasil. He gives the audience an overview of his incredible story, from losing both legs in a tragic mountain climbing accident, to his creation and invention of synthetic appendages that link the signals from our brains to the prosthetics. This creates a bionic limb that can sense our actions and allows our humanity to be reflected in the synthetic limbs. The limbs literally become a part of our bodies! Hugh challenges the limits of human potential and brings you on his journey to eliminate the word “disabled” from our vocabulary.
