To provide the Ukrainian military with modern prostheses, they will be sent abroad. Ukraine has brought the first training bionic prosthesis for wounded ATO soldiers from the British company, Joinfo.ua reports referring to Kanal 24.
The purchase of the prosthesis was made with the help of the Ukrainian diaspora.
However, now there is being carried out a training of the Ukrainian prosthetists to manufacture modern artificial limbs in Ukraine, too. So far, domestically made samples will be made only for hands. Thanks to modern technologies this kind of artificial hand is multifunctional and a person will be able to pick up thin and fragile items.
But in order to make it “take”, fighters must undergo rehabilitation and muscle training. Now more than 300 fighters are in need for prosthetics, 25 soldiers need high-tech prostheses.
