Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A cosmetic prosthesis for the nonambulatory patient with unilateral or bilateral above-knee amputation is described. This device can be made with minimal cost and difficulty, and it offers advantages of durability, flexibility, and excellent appearance. Cosmetic prostheses for patients with below-knee or hip disarticulation amputations can be made in a similar manner.
