Ryan Blanck, a prosthetist and developer of the Intrepid Dynamic Exoskeletal Orthosis brace, fits one of his braces on 1st Lt. Matthew Anderson, an infantry platoon leader, at the Center for the Intrepid in San Antonio, Nov. 10, 2011. Anderson's heel shattered when he stepped on a landmine in Kandahar, Afghanistan, in October 2010. The brace reduces his pain and enables him to run again.
