Great video

Hi Rich. The video is well worth the time, both for its moving story of Reggie Showers and for the notion that each product produced by College Park has an an individual bill of materials.

What an inspiring video. This has to be the most rewarding field of engineering. Not every engineer can have a job with such an immediate visible payback, but the engineers who do this work can easily see the difference they make in people's lives. Great video.

The video is excellent but the star is Reggie Showers "World's Fastest Amputee".  He is very well-spoken and has an unbelievably great attitude.  What an example of overcoming adversity.  Wow. Thanks for the link.

Boston Bombing victim Adrianne Haslet vows to dance again. Or so I heard on the BBC. I believe her injury is similar to Reggie Showers's, just below the knee.

I think she could use a prosthetic from college park.

Speaking of rewarding; the design aspect alone is inspiring, indeed.  I remember when I first started out, I made a promise that I wanted to work in a field that helped people, (as opposed to weapons & munitions which was an opportunity I decided to pass)

But beyond design inspiration, I was amazed at the images of the production facility at College Park.  I mistakenly imagined prosthesis centers as little labs with a small staff of designers hand-crafting the elements; but that place was like a automotive production center.  The operations manager talked about the multiple combinations of elements (stated 460,000 differentiation's possible!) Impressive logistics as well as inspiring design.
