At only 14 years old, Mike Benning had his left arm amputated below the elbow after a harrowing experience with an aggressive form of childhood cancer. Since then, Mike has worn a wide range of prosthetic devices.In 2015, he was the first person in the US be fitted with the most advanced technology of its time, the i-limb quantum. Mike will share his prosthetic journey and explain how prosthetic design has not only improved his functionality, but also how public perception has changed with the evolution of his prosthetic devices. In addition to breakfast, March's Design Museum Mornings will also include demonstrator devices, available for attendees to try.
