andrewdod that is awesome! i wonder how it would hold up to park riding. I'm sure a lot of amputees especially our soldiers would love to get back into the park. Non the less it is a great achievement that they are getting amputees back on the slopes tearing it up

Hopefully that can be produced reasonably to get a lot amputees back on the slopes.
I am thinking he can walk around with it but it is also not for day to day use. The flex and build of it seems tuned to snowboarding.

It also reminds me a lot of mountaim bike tech. I bet you can put the price of that right now in the mid to higher end mountain bike range. Maybe a whole lot more cost wise, but I think that is a reasonable guess.

Not cheap but if you could use this I think it would happen. Not too mention, with gear like this, all people involved seem to find ways to get it into deserving hands.

tonicusa Love the James Bond music. The video had moments that felt like animation at times because it was so surreal.

killclimbz I absolutely love it. This is where this sort of tech is money well spent.
