Amputee Peddles Prosthetic Finger Made From Bike Parts

March 20, 2013
Source: ABC News

When he asked his doctor about prosthetic options, the doctor told him that he would not need a prosthetic and simply needed to get used to it. Unsatisfied, Macduff found a prosthetic company he liked, but they told him he would need to have his finger further amputated to fit the prostheticís design. Macduff, a former welder and bike rider at a bicycle shop with a degree in computer aided drafting and design, refused to become accustomed to life without a finger. After the accident, Macduff drew on his education, training and love of bikes to make a creative new prosthetic that gives him the dexterity to do whatever he wants, including working in the bike shop in his garage.
