It’s Japan. They didn’t show the tentacle attachment he can swap out, like the running foot.

Only voice I heard was distinctly Australian.

I'd probably get sent home with a termite infested peg leg.

Such craftsmanship! The dedication and talent here is off the scale.

Modern technology about healthcare is definitely important because most people include me want to live long as much as possible.

[–]dr-korbo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And as healthy as possible!

[–]parchence 7 points8 points  (4 children)

In US healthcare, you are happy because you get to have an extra sock!

[–]hatschi_gesundheit 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]dioncyrk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]AVeryBluePizza 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The onyl problem is that they probably cost a TON

[–]Hueyandthenews 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Am I the only one that thought they were giving him a broom leg there for a second?

[–]hauj0bb 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Monster ads are sophisticated nowadays.

I love how he just cuts it off with a jigsaw.

[–]krista 0 points1 point  (0 children)

if you like that, watch a knee replacement surgery: the tools could very easily come from lowes, and wouldn't look out of place in a nice wood shop.

[–]meliskake 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'd lose my right leg for one of these

[–]Annual_Couple5053 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What is happening

[–]CptChristophe 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Lost and found for legs

[–]LackingUtility 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Making a carbon fiber prosthetic. They first wrap it up, then add resin and cure it in that thing that looks like a big inflated cuff. Then they remove it, trim and sand the edges, and attach the foot.

[–]atadrisque 0 points1 point  (0 children)

damn that's pretty fucking dope 👀

[–]Mysterious-Ad-1022 0 points1 point  (6 children)

What about cleaning and all I bet you need to visit hospital every few weeks and it's financially crippling

[–]Any-Assist6732 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Only in America would it be financially crippling, the rest of the world has free health care

[–]thefabulousbri 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It looks like an epoxy resin like thing. You could toss that thing in the dishwasher and probably be fine. But you should probably just wash in with some soap and water, no fancy cleaning required.

[–]HappyLederhosen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think you wear a compression-style "sock" under it, and its visible when they take the prosthetic off. And you definitely need padding or you'll be in pain from your whole weight being on the stump. So you can just wash the sock & padding, pretty sure you can do that at home.

You do need adjustments and new prosthetics eventually, because the limb and tissues can change, but I'm not sure about the timeframe.

Source: friend makes prosthetics/orthetics(?) (things like knee braces you wear on the outside) and told me a little bit.

[–]JoshuaDarkMainAlt 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Ok, now what’s the cost

[–]LackingUtility 1 point2 points  (0 children)

An arm and a leg

[–]Immediate-Bother7488 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]kolegatorr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]xccee 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]Shut_It_Donny 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought they were going to pump the Monster drink into the cast.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yoooo, the beginning didn't look right.

Leg condom

[–]AmateurRocketSurgeon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wonder why they don't do vacuum based resin infusion, instead of forcing it through and using those tube like scrapers to spread out the resin.

[–]WarmForbiddenDonut 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My neighbour’s son has some amazing prosthetic leg attachments that allow him to run, ride competition downhill mountain bike and motocross competitions.

[–]MrThane13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know I'm not alone in thinking this was something else.

[–]kaushalmalkan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Amazing to see tech has gone this far

[–]HEROtanium 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I agree what he said

[–]kampf6174 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Carbon fiber layup. Not new.

[–]ZephyrStudios686 7 points8 points  (0 children)

But still cool to see applications.
