    Enjoy the videos, and don't forget to leave comments..

    Many of the videos are related to my work as a prosthetist, and as CEO of Amputees In Hollywood LLC which I started over 18 years ago. In the 1980's I designed and managed a video studio at Otto Bock Orthopedic Industries - Minneapolis MN.

    Looking back it can be said the 1970s and 1980s were the decades of cosmetic endoskeleton artificial legs. The fashion of the day short skirts, miniskirts, and hot pants demanded more cosmetic looking prostheses and Otto Bock had just introduced the endoskeleton cosmetic prosthesis. Some of my videos are about that time.
