This week I wanted to show of two amazing videos from YouTube. When a person loses a limb, their lives change dramatically. Yes, prosthetic’s have gotten a lot better in the last few years as they are easy to use. But what if someone wanted to use Lego’s as a prosthetic? This first video has over a million views from the YouTube channel AmputeeOT. Christina Stephens is a practicing occupational therapist, clinical researcher, and peer educator chronicling her journey from foot crush injury to amputation and beyond. So she tries to make a prosthetic out of Lego’s. And yes, it works!
This other video from the YouTube channel piotrek839 shows off a Lego prosthetic hand! Could Lego’s become the future for people who needs prosthetic’s? It would make all geeks and nerds drool!
