Anything is possible, AJ Montgomery's story
One of the things we’re most proud of at the AT&T Foundry is the work we do that benefits people who face physical challenges. Whether that’s connected wheel chairs, navigation assistants for individuals who are blind/low vision to enhance their everyday experience and achieve their athletic dreams, or connected prosthetics, creating technologies that open new opportunities for people is a huge privilege for us.
Most recently, we told you the story of Hanger and their LTE-M connected device for below-the-knee prosthetic limbs. This technology provides feedback on how frequently the prosthesis is being used and what types of physical activity the patient is doing in order to make it more comfortable and adaptable for the patient. AJ Montgomery, who had his left leg amputated below the knee, is an existing Hanger patient and, as a professional acrobat, living proof that physical challenges don’t have to define you.
Our original video interview with AJ and the folks who designed and built the connected prosthetic device will give you a sense of how this technology works. But AJ has such a compelling personal story that we wanted to give you a deeper look into his amazing life and career. Check it out!
