Thankful For Modern Prosthesis

When we first learned of Jameson’s limb deficiency we knew that fitting him with prosthesis was his greatest chance at a more “normal” life. After endless hours of prosthesis research I discovered how lucky we are to have today’s modern medicine and technology. Prosthesis have come a very long way!

Back in 1978, when I was born, the prosthesis were made from mostly wood and fibreglass, they were very uncomfortable, barely functional, and unattractive.

We feel so blessed to have more advanced options for our baby.

At Advanced Arm Dynamics they showed us some of the current options like: very realistic skin, manicured nails, tattoos, Ipod docks, and of coarse the electric ones. It is truly amazing and we are very excited to see what the future has in store for Jameson!

Some of todays todays options:

manicured nails

realistic skin
