Home Brew Prosthesis: From Matthew Pepe in Bolivia

Matt works in a prosthetic center in Bolivia and the attached photo of a prosthesis (being held by his technician) that a local village women made using a POT as her socket.

The man made his from a heavy block of wood and heavy steel bars.

I think Matt is doing an amazing work down in Bolivia with very few resources but they can always use help — technology, materials and money, if anyone would like to donate to a good cause check out their website and youtube channel.
