Yesterday's Physical Therapy Session

Cindy showed that she could walk with the prosthesis without pain. The test will be how it feels once she wears it for extended perios of time. She will begin practicing tonight and we will see how it goes.

Lengthy session scheduled for tomorrow as they make adjustments to the prosthesis.

We will be answering your questions in the next day or two...if you have other questions you wish to ask, please offer them and we will be sure to answer.

Here is a sample Q & A:
Q: How much does an artificial leg weigh?
A: The leg Cindy has weighs 10.5 lbs.


  1. Question:
    How does the leg know what to do? Are there sensors linked to muscles, which Cindy needs to use to communicate to the leg how to move?

    When will the Orioles win another game this year?
