What if we could become transhumans? | Oskar Aszmann | TEDxVienna
We live in a world where we can fix nearly everything. We fix wrecked cars, broken laptops and also human beings. But how far can we go? Is it justifiable to substitute faulty body parts with ‘better’ working bionic prosthetics to improve our lives or are we playing God? Listen to the journey of a doctor and his patient discovering their answer to this question.
Oskar is Associate Professor of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Both his research and clinical focus have always been peripheral nerve reconstruction and extremity/hand rehabilitation. His core interest is the recovery and rehabilitation of patients with impaired extremity function.
