In this video David Chandonnet the Chief of Prosthetics at the VA Health Care System in Providence, RI and Dan LeBlanc, the retired Director of Veterans Services, in New Bedford, MA talk about questions, issues and concerns regarding amputation and advances in prosthesis.
There are many different types of prosthesis and their components. The prescription of these devices can be quite varied depending on the individual and their age and lifestyle. In the lecture you can hear first hand experience from an amputee and how they coped with the grief process and adjusting to the changes associated with the loss.
