Artificial limbs have been assisting people to live normal lives for centuries. This is their main purpose; to ensure that people can carry on living happy, balanced lives.
Like when anyone takes a trip, it will need meticulous preparation, and even then it is possible not everything will go to plan. As someone with permanent prosthesis, you will still need to do meticulous planning for your trip, but yours will include challenges faced by those with artificial limbs. Though you may need to prepare for things others do not, permanent prosthesis makes it possible for many amputees to travel regularly and comfortably. Please note, if you are a diabetic, the medical advice for your prosthetic will differ and you should see your doctor before committing to any trip.
Permanent prosthesis has come a long way since its earliest inceptions traced as far back as Ancient Egypt. It has evolved in its application, technology and the way cultures have embraced the art of prosthetics.
Losing a limb is a traumatic experience that sends people through the stages of grief, much like those when losing a loved one. Though this grieving process is both healthy and necessary there is light at the end of the tunnel. With permanent prosthesis you can work to regain your independence after amputation and begin your second chance with your very own custom made prosthesis.
Diabetes, Type 1 and 2, has complicated and cost many people their lives. Oftentimes individuals suffering from diabetes require amputation due to complications caused by the disease. Permanent prosthesis and artificial limbs are made available to such patients so that they can stay mobile.
