A “Home Brew” below the knee prosthesis, very ingenious!

A patient of ours came to us with this prosthesis.  He had taken aluminum foil and wrapped his leg and a broom stick together.  He then took marine resin and painted it on the inside and outside of the foil and reinforced the attachment to the “pylon”.  Check out his prosthesis, I thought it was neat.


If you have any pictures of “Home Brew” designs please forward them to me, brent@lifenabled.com .  I am always amazed at the creativity many people use to gain mobility.
