The mental torture of not being able to live a "normal life" either post accident or after a "birth defect" will hopefully soon be a thing of the past.

Dr. Peter Liacouras is working on creating a custom device that will allow a wounded service member to get ready in the morning by themselves. We take it for granted, but this can be a daunting and consuming task for those who have lost a limb. As the Director of Service for 3D Medical Applications Center at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Liacouras uses cutting-edge technologies to improve people’s quality of life by pushing the fields of prosthetics and orthotics forward.
