Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year.
When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.
But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)
At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.
Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”
Amen to that, Hugh.

#me trying to reach my life goals
But if the distance is permanent?
Even if the two people don’t want it?
What do you do when you are miles apart and can’t be together?
What do you do then?
If my hair looked like this all the time, it’d be great #goodhairday #ifonly #ifeelpretty
Clear your mind here
But really, why??
I dont just do this with people I know. I try to help everyone
i’d stay up with ANYONE.
I’ve done this with so many people, some I didn’t even know.
