New Technology Perspective
A different way to look at the value of technology – The Human Value!
I look at technology in many ways and one of those ways is how technology is improving our lives. Way beyond cell phones and car computers – a real human effect by technology. I have help design many network tools but being an amputee, this new use of technology is especially important to me and helps so many like me!
Today amputees have a variety of new capabilities that are added to traditionally stagnant or useless limbs. Today artificial hands can shake your hand, can hold an egg, cook a meal, hold a baby or sooth a person in strife or pain. Today soldiers that lost legs can walk again, those that lost arms and hands can hold again! This new part of technology is rapidly growing and the next generation of Bionic and Robotic limbs will add prosthetics into the realm of science fiction by adding neurological control and even feeling!
This picture is of 100 years of treating leg amputations at the veterans Caulfield Hospital. These prosthetics are from 1915 to 2015 and really look like torture devices but they allowed for some mobility and life value recovery for limb loss individuals!
