Orthotic and Prosthetic history is amazing!

Subatmospheric suspension in the late 1800’s?  Gluteal and Ischial containment in the late 1800’s? and Energy storing AFO’s 1950’s?  Locking liners in the 1970’s? Orthotics and Prosthetics has an amazing heritage.  In your spare time, Google these people (only a partial list that comes to mind) and be amazed at what you find.
