Those of us who have prosthetics have benefited from technological advances. I once went to a Hip Hip Hooray fundraiser, where they had the first artificial hips on display. Talk about carrying extra weight. Those things looked more like parts that would fit into a DC-3 rather than into a human body!
After reading this story in the paper - "Artificial body parts take big strides" - I've been giving lots of thought to how far I would be willing to go to restore myself to my natural self - the self before RA had its way with me. Would I be willing to remove my existing hand for an artificial one, like the one Bertoit Meyer is using? How far would you be willing to go?
