As part of West Michigan Design Week, Design West Michigan is pleased to bring Dr. Hugh Herr to speak at Grand Rapids Civic Theater on April 6, 2015.

Biomechanics pioneer Dr. Hugh Herr blazes trails across a diverse set of scientific and technological disciplines to accelerate the merging of body and machine. Since losing his lower legs in a mountaineering accident as a high school student, Dr. Herr has devoted his life to assisting the elderly and the disabled through innovative research and design. His research accomplishments as Director of the Biomechatronics group at The MIT Media Lab and Director of The Herr Institute for Human Rehabilitation have already made a significant impact on the lives on physically challenged people.
