A new Detroit business startup, Advanced Amputee Solutions, is developing a polymer that can be applied during amputation surgery to cushion the cut bone and seal the bone marrow. Prosthetist Gordon Maniere, who co-founded the company, hopes this will address the challenge of fitting a rigid prosthesis to the shape of a daily-changing residual limb. "That's the biggest problem because the amputee won't wear the prosthetic if it causes pain," he said.
