Summary: 31, man, Zac Vawters lost his leg to a motorcycle accident. Losing his leg, he lost all hope of ever being a normal human being, than his life changed when Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago came along and said “We can help you.”, equiping Vawters with a bionic mind controlled leg with a catch…to raise fundraising for the event , “SkyTower”.  Vawters climbed 103 floors at the Willis Tower with a bionic leg and no problems. Pretty coolio, huh? Apparently, the wiring the gizmo are wired to his muscles and the electrical impulse it gives off from the brain to the leg, so mind controlled leg.

“Everything went great,” said Vawter at the event’s end. “The prosthetic leg did its part, and I did my part.”
