Jeff I agree. I am glad I am not in a wheelchair. I do
have bony limbs and I choose to be very active so I expect
problems and I have various ways of protecting my skin.
The technology needs to move forward. There hasn't been
much money invested in socket design until now. This is
partially because of the number of Iraq war amputees. I
think over 70% of amputees are over the age of 70 and
don't use their legs very often. Younger more active
amputees are going to need better sockets. Hopefully this
will benefit all amputees.
