Meet Momo: Easton LaChappelle's inspiration

146 ratings | 208263 views
Nine-year-old Momo, born without a right forearm and hand, excels in school and athletics, from improvising poetry to riding horses. Since the age of 4, she has used a basic prosthetic model with limited movement, a hook-and-pully system for an arm and hand. When asked what her dreams were, without hesitation, Momo said she wanted an arm with fingers that move. Now, Momo is the first recipient of a technology developed by 21-year-old robotics engineer Easton LaChappelle that could impact millions of people all over the world.

Minute 1:41 of this video shows a professionally made prosthetic arm that costs $5,000 (and covered by insurance). Why does minute 1:46 claim that prosthetic arms cost $100,000. This is misleading and harmful because parents may not pursue professional care if they think it is unattainable .... unless Microsoft is going to fly every amputee to Seattle and assign a team of engineers to make their prosthetics for free
