The Cheetah prosthetic running blade, developed by Össur,
Reykjavik, Iceland, is featured in an exhibition at the John F. Kennedy
Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC through August 30. The
exhibit, “Artful Innovation: Inclusive Design and Technology,” showcases
Cheetahs worn by Team Össur Paralympic athletes April Holmes and Jerome
Singleton, and notes that the prosthesis exemplifies streamlined design
that has produced power and agility for elite and recreational amputee
athletes for 20 years.
