This week, on October 24th, our team visited Bionic Prosthetics & Orthotics at their office in Merrillville. Here, we had the opportunity to learn about the consultation process for those in need of prosthesis and the manufacturing process as to how the prosthesis are made. Our team learned a lot of interesting facts, such as 7% of prosthesis are for the upper body and users must learn how to rework muscles in order to trigger the prosthetic part to move and carry out their everyday needs. We thank them for the great opportunity to learn and create such a meaningful connection. It was such a wonderful experience that we hope will help nurture a connection for the future.
