Not real dusty, but a little. One man made it possible for him to be a kid again:
â€śDayton wanted to get more active than his prosthetics would allow. I thought we could help that,â€ť said [Dennis] Haun.
Haun created prosthetic legs that included Flex Run feet by Ossur. The Flex Run feet are what allow Dayton to run.
[ . . . ]
â€śIf thereâ€™s anything that Dayton desires, Dennis will put his feelers out. And if he doesnâ€™t already know how to create something for him, he will reach out to somebody else and make sure that it happens,â€ť Natalie says.
â€śIn fact, he helped design a shooting arm. It helps Dayton be able to pull the trigger on his gun or his bow when hunting.â€ť
Read the whole thing (it’s not long) and say a prayer for both Dayton and Haun.
Incidentally, I’m currently reading The Future of the Mind, by Michio Kaku and will have a review up, probably tomorrow. The future looks very bright for “smart” prosthetics controlled directly by the wearer’s brain.
