Our Prosthetics Models

Many individuals, past and present, have participated as Educational Models in Prosthetics. They all make important contributions to NUPOC and to their society. Their lives are vibrant and interesting. Some NUPOC Educational Models have generously shared their experiences to help other people who may live with limb loss. With their permission, we post their stories and hope that their experiences will inspire and encourage others. Read more about our models below.

If you have a physical disability or use a prosthesis or orthosis and would like to volunteer as an Educational Model at NUPOC, please email Ken Harris.
