Technology Trends In Prosthetic Limbs

Prosthetic limbs were invented around 1861. They were needed after soldiers lost their limbs while fighting in wars.

Micaela Marroquin

When the surgeons sewed their patients stumps, they very frequently used fertile thread which they licked to make the thread go through the eye of the needle easier.

For a while, surgeons had no idea how to make the limbs so they could comfortably bear the patients' weight.

Wood, iron, and leather were traditionally used for making prosthetic limbs and their harnesses.

New materials, new medicines, and new social attitudes were all discovered between the years of 1900 and 1920.
