The latest episode of Star Warsologies focuses on limb replacement and prosthetics in Star Wars!
Dr. Gerald Stark, senior clinical specialist and prosthetician for Ottobock, joins us for a discussion about bionic limbs, exoskeletons, and other prosthetics and orthotics. How close are we to Luke’s bionic hand in real life? How is the work of a prosthetician much more than just fitting a replacement body part? How do Paralympians go for designs that exceed human functionality? We also talk about General Grievous, clonetrooper Echo and even prosthetics for llamas and other animals! Tune in to this episode on Star Wars prosthetics and find out!
In Star Warsologies, hosts James Floyd and Melissa Miller combine their love of Star Wars with their keen interest in all things academic by asking experts about how their field is represented in a galaxy far, far away. It’s a monthly podcast about science and Star Wars!
