High Heel Prosthetic

A woman who lost a leg in the Boston Marathon bombings can now wear heels again.

Check it out.

Heather Abbott of Rhode Island was given a new prosthetic leg that allows her to don her favorite shoes again.
   
She already has a conventional prosthetic leg, but this new leg from next step bionics and prosthetics resembles her own leg in appearance.

Abbott says she used to wear heels every day before the bombing.
