Tyler Sugg grew up around orthotics and prosthetics; however, he did not see himself as a clinician. Working at the family shop meant having a job and making a few dollars while in high school and college. Tyler graduated from East Carolina University with a degree in Psychology and then completed his master's in Hispanic Studies shortly after. As fate would have it, he loved 3D printing and design specifically for cosplay, and Eastpoint Prosthetics and Orthotics was dipping their toes into printing. What started off as "I will give it a go" now is a full-time passion for Tyler. He is one of the most creative designers in the nation and the world. He is a wizard in Fusion 360, Meshmixer, and Oqton Freeform.If you think you need a degree in O & P to make a difference in the field, this podcast is for you. If you are a clinician looking to get started with 3D printing, Tyler drops plenty of nuggets around scanning, machines, and software.

James contracted Lyme's disease as a young child and suffered horrible complications from it for years that limited his life in many ways. This experience led him to Qigong, which we get to in the show, but it also gave him a unique perspective into a life of difficulty.Now, James uses this perspective and his expertise as an engineer to design prosthetic limbs that address every small problem an amputee may have to face.In this episode we cover James' backstory, his scrappy journey to starting his own company and how his work lines up with what he considers his duty in life.

In today's episode, I interview Cindy Miller, Principal at Cindy Miller Public Relations. Her career in communications and public relations has given her exposure to many industries and issues, which has led to a level of experience she can draw from to address new challenges.She started with an ad agency in Milwaukee where she was able to write copy, edit scripts, coordinate video shoots, and observe and learn from the best creative minds in the business. Regardless of the jobs she had, the highlights have always been telling the story. At Southern California Orthotics and Prosthetics, she was able to share the story of a man who was able to walk after years of immobility due to a motorcycle accident.  She also had her fair share of addressing tough issues like student safety at Indiana University, or how farmers treat their animals on dairies. Some would like to think that PR is all about sharing good news, but sometimes you have to face hard topics head-on. Through it all - each challenge was met with thoughtful planning and execution -- all in the name of educating, informing, and communicating to the public.Know more about Cindyhttps://cindymillerpr.com/Connect with Cindyhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/prcindymiller/

Burying Green: Eco-Friendly Death Care On The Rise Dying, it turns out, isn't carbon neutral. Like many of the choices we make in our lifetimes, the choice to cremate or preserve our bodies after death comes with tradeoffs as well. With preservation and burial, there's the carbon cost of cemetery space, the materials to make a coffin, and the chemicals required to prevent decay. With cremation, the body's carbon is released into the atmosphere through the burning of natural gas. This is one of the reasons why companies are starting to offer more eco-friendly options, such as water-assisted cremation. Composting human bodies is another option, allowing our carbon to be sequestered in the soil, and providing nutrients for ecosystems or gardens. But in the United States, these lower-carbon funereal options are often against the law. Now, that's slowly changing, with pressure from people who wish to use those options for themselves when the time comes. Producer Kathleen Davis discusses these issues and more with mortician Caitlin Doughty and Katrina Spade, founder of Recompose, a company that has pioneered the practice of human composting. Plus, the relationship between grief, ritual, and the choices we have for our mortal remains.   This Brain Prosthesis Could Improve Memory Loss When people hear the word “prosthetic,” they'll probably think of an arm or a leg. But what about a prosthetic for the brain? A team of neuroscientists is designing a device that could “zap” the brain into remembering information better, and it's targeted for people with memory loss. They're doing so by studying the electrical patterns involved in memory, then mimicking them with electrodes implanted in the brain. Ira speaks with Dr. Robert Hampson, neuroscientist at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, who is working on the implant.     Making a Meal Fit For An Astronaut Life on the International Space Station throws some wrenches into how food and eating work. There's very little gravity, after all. And there are big differences between nutritional needs on Earth and in space. Astronauts must exercise two hours each day on the International Space Station to prevent bone and muscle loss, meaning daily caloric intake needs to be somewhere between 2,500 and 3,500 calories. Sodium must also be reduced, as an astronaut's body sheds less of it in space. Astronauts also have an increased need for Vitamin D, as their skin isn't able to create it from sunlight as people on Earth do. So, how do all these limitations affect the food astronauts eat? Joining guest host Kathleen Davis to answer these gustatory questions is Xulei Wu, food systems manager for the International Space Station in Houston, Texas. Transcripts for each segment will be available the week after the show airs on sciencefriday.com.

It was a summer day in 2012 when Bob Richey's life was changed forever. He was a new college grad, having fun with friends at the beach. Like he’d done so many times before, Richey dove into the surf — but this time, something was off. He broke two vertebrae in his neck and ended up paralyzed from the chest down. Since then, he's been using a power wheelchair, which allows him to get around, work as a software engineer, even drive a custom van. When medical equipment is an absolute necessity — the only way someone can keep going, literally and figuratively — it takes on an outsized role. It must fit right and work right, be accessible and affordable — or the consequences can be grave. On this episode, we look at the medical gear that's changing — and even saving — lives. We hear stories about how the ice bucket challenge changed life for people with ALS, the growing role prosthetists are playing in patients' lives, and the medical device that alerted the bomb squad at the airport.

Some Grasses Can Stop Lead From Spreading In Soil Lead left behind in soil from mining and smelting poses a major health risk to people who live nearby. Researchers in Nebraska and Kansas believe plant life and organic material can limit lead's spread.In parts of the Midwest where lead mining and smelting lasted for over a century, communities are still dealing with toxic waste left behind by the industry. Lead, a dangerous neurotoxin, persists in the environment, including in water and soil, where it can pose a threat to the health of people living nearby. The risk is especially acute for children, who can unintentionally ingest lead by putting their hands in their mouths and whose brains and bodies are still developing. It can be spread to other areas, like yards and schools, by rainfall, and can also taint aquifers or vegetables in gardens, making them harmful to consume. Now researchers are working to limit the impact of lead in the environment on people, and they believe they've found a promising solution: Plant life. Phytostabilization involves moving lead from soil into the roots, stems and leaves of plants to prevent it from spreading and to limit people's contact with it. “One of the goals of phytostabilization is to take the site with lead and put it in a stable state, so that the risk is reduced, and the issues related to lead in the soil can be managed,” said Larry Erickson, a professor emeritus at Kansas State University and former director of the university's Center for Hazardous Substance Research.

Today's cutting-edge robotic limbs use mind-control and even give users a sense of touch, helping them feel sensations like a warm cup of coffee or a mushy banana. Still, these state-of-the-art prosthetics often involve invasive brain surgeries and can be exorbitantly expensive. Hearing of these issues, one teenager set out to create a solution. Seventeen-year-old Benjamin Choi has developed a non-invasive, affordable prosthetic arm. His Star Wars-inspired technology reads a user's mind with only two sensors—one on the forehead and the other clipped to the earlobe. And he doesn't plan on stopping there. He sees his work in artificial intelligence expanding to help ALS patients, wheelchair users, and beyond. Ira speaks with Benjamin Choi from McLean, Virginia about how he developed this arm and what it means to be a young innovator.   New Immunotherapy Shows Promise Far Beyond Cancer CAR T cell therapy, a type of immunotherapy in which a patient's own immune cells are modified to create a hybrid immune cell that destroys cancer cells, was first developed over a decade ago. Now, researchers are continuing to find success in treating new types of blood cancers with the therapy, and are working on applying the technology to solid state cancers like those of the pancreas and brain. Scientists are also at the early stages of testing CAR T cells to treat autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS) and lupus. Ira talks with Dr. Carl June, one of the pioneers of CAR T cell therapy, a professor of immunotherapy and director of the Center for Cellular Immunotherapies at the University of Pennsylvania, based in Philadelphia.   Feeling Hopeless About Climate Change? Try Playing These Video Games Five years ago, Stephanie Barish was tired of the public's attitude about climate change. “Most people at that time were just so negative about climate,” she said. “It was doom and destruction, and I thought, wow, to make positive change, you have to really look at this from a solutions perspective.” Stephanie is the founder and CEO of Indiecade, an organization that supports indie video game developers and hosts events like the Climate Jam—the goal of which was to change the gloomy public narrative around climate change. So, with the help of organizations like Earth Games, participants around the globe gather every year to make video games about climate change optimism, solutions, and justice. Teams can also consult with subject matter experts, like Dargan Frierson, an associate professor of atmospheric sciences at the University of Washington, and also a judge for the Climate Jam. If teams wonder what climate change would look like on a different planet, they can go to him for answers. “We always look for scientific accuracy,” he said. “I think it's very important to keep things within the realm of possibility, even when you're looking at fiction.” Read the rest of the article and check out some of the games at sciencefriday.com.   Analogue Animation: Turning The Pages Of A Flipbook Machine Brooklyn-based artist J.C.

Fontanive joins Ira to talk about the act of invention, the ‘primal' language of art, and how to create visceral work in a digital age. See the flipbooks in gorgeous action at sciencefriday.com. Transcripts for each segment will be available the week after the show airs on sciencefriday.com.
