"Bionic Arm" paves the way in latest prosthesis

It's the latest technology and advancement in prosthetics; Cale Donley calls it his 'bionic arm.'

PHOENIX - Growing up, 26-year-old Cale Donley never broke a bone in his body.

That all changed in October 2015. Donley suffered a motorcycling accident and lost his arm.

"They didn't want to move me because I had broken so many bones," Donley said. "I had a punctured lung among other things."

Once Donley understood the severity of his injuries, he opted for a prosthesis that would give him more mobility.

"I call it my 'bionic arm,'" Donley said.

Coapt, the technology and operating system inside the arm, is the latest innovation in prosthesis technology.

"If you are any bit technologically savvy, I would recommend this 100 percent," Donley said.
