"Best Documentary Award" - 2013 Boston International Film Festival
From Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab to universities across the country and the Amputee Coalition's camp for kids, this documentary explores the evolution of prosthetics and the developments that are changing what it means to lose a limb. What was once futuristic is occurring now at the intersection of neuroscience, engineering and robotics. Advances in prosthetics always coincide with wars, but recent conflicts have spurred unprecedented funding, including the "Revolutionizing Prosthetics" project. Soldiers who have lost limbs receive the most media attention, but they are a fraction of the millions of amputees who are invisibly all around us. A science story and a human story, Out On A Limb shows the impact of this transformative science as revolutionary prosthetics move from the lab to the bodies of amputees.
