Heart Stop Beating by Jeremiah Zagar of Focus Forward Films.

Back in July of 2011, a reader asked me about my opinion on a pulseless pump. At the time, I had never heard of such a technology but was excited and intrigued. Drs. Billy Cohn and Bud Frazier saved the life of Craig Lewis with a pump design that was so far out of the box, that by all conventional metrics the patient was dead.

And yet he lives.

This company does something innovative a-la patient centered care: they produce one-off prosthetic limbs for amputees. It’s not their custom option, it’s their only option. Every prosthetic limb is made from scratch with no store-bought parts and are prototyped and built in-house.
Every client is given a lengthy interview to understand their background, their character and their personality in order to build a limb that matches up with said client. As a result, every person has a prosthetic limb that is different from every other limb in the world.
