The stamp is part of a new USPS series on innovation, representing computing, biomedicine, genome sequencing, robotics, and solar technology
For the robotics category of the innovation series, the USPS chose the bionic prosthesis designed by Media Lab PhD graduate Matt Carney
Carney, Matthew E. “Design and Evaluation of a Reaction-Force Series Elastic Actuator Configurable as Biomimetic Powered Ankle and Knee Prostheses By.” Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2020.
Everett Lawson and Matt Carney worked with Biomechatronics group head Hugh Herr to fit Everett with a bionic prosthesis.
