Dolphin Gets Prosthetic Tail Answered

Picture of

This dolphin was just a couple months old when it got caught in a trap and turned its tail into a useless stump. After a year and a half of recovery and building, she now has a prosthetic tail and has been swimming about with it. Nice.

That's incredible, and I've got to wonder if the technology is applicable to humans - could it result in a better flipper, or a flipper for people with prosthetic feet or legs?
