Roman Kostomarov, the Olympic champion in pair ice dancing, who lost both feet, can count on unique prostheses. Alexey Skoblin, Deputy General Director of the Federal State Unitary Enterprise Center for Innovative Technologies in Orthopedics, spoke about this.

According to him, in some cases, patients who have lost limbs require individual prosthetic feet, taking into account the anthropological and biomechanical parameters of a person.

“The success of prosthetics depends not only on the quality of the manufacture of the prosthesis itself, but, to a large extent, on rehabilitation and adaptation before and after prosthetics,” he added in an interview with PROZVEZD.

The interlocutor of the portal specified that Kostomarov would have to learn how to use all the possibilities of an artificial limb, and this, according to Skoblin, is a lot of work.
