Can biomechanical technology expand human potential? Advances in prosthetic technology may be blurring the lines between man and machine, but true technological breakthroughs wouldn’t be possible without individuals who are constantly pushing the limits. Meet three wounded warriors whose will to move beyond their physical limitations is transforming prosthetic technology. Hear inspirational stories of how they reclaimed their lives after devastating injuries and are now using the power of advanced prosthetic technology to live lives filled with accomplishments beyond their expectations — from competing in the Paralympics and Invictus Games to returning to active pilot duty.
