Senator Hassan Statement on First Public Demonstrations of LUKE Arm Advancements in Prosthetic Design

WASHINGTON – Senator Maggie Hassan released the following statement today on the first public demonstrations of LUKE arm advancements in prosthetic design:

“The LUKE arm prosthesis is an exciting and innovative development that will support our veterans who have bravely sacrificed in defense of our freedom. While I regret that I cannot be there in person for the demonstration of the LUKE arm prosthesis, I want to congratulate Dean Kamen, DEKA, Next Step Bionics and Prosthetics, and all of the dedicated professionals at the VA for the progress they have made with this groundbreaking technology. I will keep working to support innovative businesses like theirs that are not only helping to strengthen our economy, but also supporting fellow Granite Staters who have risked their lives fighting to keep us all safe, secure, and free.”
