The History and Future of Amputation and Prosthetics
Take a moment to think of all the remarkable capabilities of the human body. People can run marathons, swim across great bodies of water, or manipulate their hands to write magnificent novels. In fact, most people's days are spent doing various manual activities. Yet nearly everyone takes these abilities for granted because they are automatic experiences. But just imagine if all this convenience vanished. Why? Maybe you lost a hand, a foot, or a limb because of a war, a disease, or an accident. With this deprivation comes a new way of life. Only with sheer will power and the modern technological advances in prosthetics have amputees been able live a full life. Enter this web site to journey into the tragic world of amputation and the promising hope of prosthetics.
