Medgadget: Necessity is the Mother of Invention

Prosthetic limb technology is exploding thanks to the unfortunate circumstances survivors of explosions in Afghanistand and Iraq endure.

Improved technology--better body armor, triage protocals on the battlefield--save lives. Hopefully, the "bionic" arms and legs will make life happier and more normal for our brave soldiers.
