No 'business' twist on this one... just an amazing set of photographs to remind us why we do all the boring grunt work. Time to turn off the computer, dust of the cameras and make some images!

A Mountain Goat-Inspired Prosthetic Leg for Rock Climbing

A Mountain Goat-Inspired Prosthetic Leg for Rock Climbing | Rock Climbing & Mountaineering | Scoop.it

"There are certain things we have to do every day, like eating. But for physical and mental health, it's just as important to be able to do things that we want to do. And specialized prosthetics allow amputees to do the specific stuff. If you have one arm and want  to play the drums, you can do it. And if you have one leg and want to go rock climbing ... you can do it.. [...] Klippa is a prototyped leg prosthetic created specifically for climbing. Its design draws on the way mountain goat hooves provide traction, grip, stability, and concentrated force for the body they're supporting. "

Chelsea Mandell, senior


“[I like] backpacking and being outdoors, so the next step is to rock climb when I’m out there, so I have to build up while I’m here [at the gym].”


“It’s a good mental challenge, as well as physical.”
