Untitled[edit]

The cost section of this article seems extremely sparse. Is there a way we can add in a general cost (or even a range of costs for different types of prosthetics) to further elaborate on this?

A couple questions[edit]

I just finished writing this article (it's my first one), but wanted to point out a couple things that could potentially be . Will prosthetics eventually be better then a real arm? That sort of thing. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nfk17 (talkcontribs) 05:35, 15 February 2007 (UTC).

Jaipur Foot[edit]

Not much is mentioned on Jaipur Foot. An article on artificial limbs is incomplete without the mention of Jaipur Foot. --128.210.107.22 15:52, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

I have a useful self-made image of a prosthetic leg[edit]

Problem is, the guy that I know who uses the prosthetic leg may not be happy with me uploading the picture to Wikipedia, even though it doesn't personally identify him - it's just the unattached leg. I'm not uploading it right now per WP:HARM and the presumption in favour of privacy. Thoughts?--h i s s p a c e r e s e a r c h 07:27, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Direct Bone Attachment[edit]

Is there an issue with infections at the abutment? Seems like the implant/skin surface interface would be a problem... 70.21.36.13 (talk) 05:30, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
