SOURCES OF INFORMATION

Open Prosthetics is our informational site and has links to accept donations. We maintain an Instructables Group, on which completed designs can be posted, and other collaboration can happen. We also have a a Google Group.

We're working on a wiki, where we will post information on prosthetics in general, to include information on the history of prosthetics, and a users guide to what is available.

Too many ways to find out about stuff? Maybe, but use whatever you're comfortable with, and we're sure the good ideas will get noticed.

Pimp My Arm

The place at OPP where users can talk about their needs and desires for prosthetic development, and volunteers can discuss solutions. This is the "blue sky," "no idea too crazy," Halfbakery section of the project. A more detailed explanation is here.

Pimp my arm has sections for arms, legs, and everything else.

More About the Wiki

A wiki is a user-editable webpage. Ours has sections on the various projects we're hoping to get users and volunteers working on.

We'd like to figure out what people need in a toolkit to maintain their prostheses as needed.

We're looking for help designing a survey to figure out what amputees like and don't like about their prostheses (if they wear them at all). Here's your chance to tell everyone what they should have asked you.
