WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Extraordinary Extremities was inspired by the NPR story on Hugh Herr; the biomedical engineer whose legs were amputated after a climbing accident and who now designs technologically advanced artificial limbs. Hugh himself has over twenty different pairs of feet, "I feel fortunate that I can always look forward to having better and better feet," he stated in his "Fresh Air" interview entitled "The Double Amputee Who Designs Better Limbs."
