The meaning of bamboo / artificial limb

The meaning of bamboo

Much of the prosthesis is made from bamboo, reducing the cost. The body and bottom of the bamboo reduces the consumption of walking on the prosthetic legs through the elasticity of the bamboo itself, so that walking on the prosthetic legs is effortless. The part of the human body in contact with the artificial limb is made of silica gel material. When used, it forms a suitable shape according to each person's situation and will not hurt the body. Because bamboo material cost is low, product structure is simple. Easy to replace in case of damage
