Army Vet Carries’ Luke Arm

Carrie’s Army career abruptly ended because of an automobile accident that left her an amputee.  Carrie was medically retired in November of 1995, leaving behind a Military career she greatly enjoyed.

With a passion to continue to serve her former military family and others, and with no expectation of any personal benefit, Carrie volunteered to be a test subject helping DEKA Research develop and design the most advanced robotic human-controlled prosthetic arm in history.

To Carrie’s great surprise, Independence Corps reached out to her and told her she was our first candidate for her own Luke Arm.
