We can’t argue with Hugh Herr, a double amputee, who says he’s not disabled. First of all, he’s a professional climber; secondly, when he walks using prosthetics he created himself, you really can’t tell from his gait. Hugh Herr currently directs the Biomechatronics research group at MIT Media Lab, and we owe him for the first-ever intelligent prosthetics, which utilize bionics to work like real body parts. His company, “iWalk,” has helped veterans, amputees, and stroke victims get their lives back. As he envisions a world where disability doesn’t exist, it’s certainly safe to call him a visionary.
