Drug Delivery Partnerships TV: An Interview with Dean Kamen - Part 2

This week, we continue with Marc Dresner's interview with Dean Kamen at DDP 2011.  This week, Dean discusses how DEKA was tasked with the challenge to create prosthetic arm for service men who had lost their limbs in Iraq.  The government wanted an arm that could pick up a grape from the table and move it to the mouth without crushing the grape.  However, since the success of this invention, they've been challenged with the policies that are in place tho regulate the industry.

Kamen states that his company moves at the speed of technology, not regulation.  Should the government make exceptions in cases like this as well?
