There has always been a need to increase the function of limbs that have been damaged by disease, birth defects, accidents or war. Over the years the necessities for more comfortable appliances have met up with modern technology. The use of space age plastics and metals such as titanium are now common. Today’s products are more comfortable, stronger and lighter.
There are better foot supports which combine the use of foam and silicone gels. There are also upper and lower limb braces that use thermo plastics and thermofoams, like the ankle support gel cast and neck vibrating support shown in the photos on the left.
