Artificial limbs, prosthetics, and 3-D Printing were just some of the topics discussed at this meeting last Wednesday, November 28th. Artificial limbs have always been around but now a person who has lost a part of his body has more options and the prospect of a better quality of life.
Medical science combined with advances in technology have changed the world of prosthetics. 3D Printing has impacted many sectors of our society but in medicine it has progressed to the point that a person whose extremities have been compromised may regain their normal function.
What will the future bring? Who knows? And how will ethics be a factor in deciding who benefits from this technology? All good questions to ponder. Check out the “Iron Man, Iron Boy” video. Inspirational!
Our next club meeting will be a brief one to discuss next semester’s activities. This will be held on Wednesday, December 12th. As part of the Christmas Casual Day, the members will come with an ugly Christmas sweater (or t-shirt as the case may be). I’ll take pictures so be prepared. Thursday, December 13th we’ll have Gaming Session #7. Till next time! ~~LMMolina, Club Adviser
