He isn’t the first person to be outfitted with a prosthesis to compensate for injury but he may be the most extensive. Sam is a long-time and dedicated worker and when he suffered a terrible accident, all he wanted to do was to get back to work.
But the damage was extensive and the current off-the shelf mechanical arms and legs weren’t practical. That didn’t deter Sam. He knew that the impossible is possible and reached out to the robotics experts at MIT with a revolutionary concept.
He found the right people and after ten years of design and construction, Sam is back to work keeping the sidewalks of Philadelphia clean and welcoming. The folks at MIT are currently working on a scaled up version for hockey rinks.
