Army Capt. Carey DuVal lost his hand in an IED attack in Afghanistan six years ago. But this fatal incident did not stop him from moving on and pursuing a changed life. He is now helping on the test of a new robotic prosthetic hand made by Westlake Village interface company, Biodesigns. The technology is giving hope to people and is changing the game for amputees across the world. DuVal went back from his usual weightlifting, CrossFit, and yoga and it has allowed him to return to his job in the infantry.
