It is a blustery and bleak day outside Clark Hall at Johns Hopkins University, but inside, students are working on something big and bright on the horizon. Under the fluorescents of one classroom ceiling students are 3-D printing, programming, soldering things together; it is a symphony of movement in the orchestra of prostheses, artificial limbs for amputees. The soldering iron hums, the solder sizzles and the printer buzzes all in perfect harmony. This complex rhythm is the coming together of research into a sensor database that will lead to new, unprecedented technology in prosthetic devices. In this lab, the students hope to meld technological data with brain signals in prosthetic machinery, like no one has ever done before.

Thursday, February 16, 2006, the weather was clear and the roads were dry. The crew had left Fordyce headed to Carthage in northeast Dallas County, Texas, never to return again. According to the State Police’s accident report, James Goodman, an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and Timothy Clowers, a Paramedic, were responding to a medical emergency when the 7 p.m. accident occurred. The driver of the ambulance lost control while negotiating a curve. The accident report indicated that neither of the men were wearing seat belts. The vehicle overturned several times before striking the tree, ejecting them both. Goodman was married with two children. Clowers was single.
