Accessible Prosthetic

Prosthetic limbs are made with more than physical accessibility in mind

Implications - Individuals who require prosthetic limbs are concerned with accessibility not just when it comes to their physical mobility, but in multifaceted social and economic ways -- a fact which companies that provide prosthetic limbs are now aiming to integrate. With additional points of availability that can range from cost to self-building programs, the world of prosthetic design and use has become much more inclusive to individuals who would otherwise be unable to reap the benefits of new technologies due to costs and/or geographic remoteness.
