I think affordability is the most crucial factor. If there was a large supply available, I do not know if the disabled veterans would even be able to afford them. With the status of health insurance in this country, it might even be a longshot.

Whenever regulation comes first than innovation, the second one suffers. I think they should be pre-approved by the FDA to try different things.

I felt the same way. At times when I see the injured veteran on TV, it makes one to be thoughtful of the great sacrifice they have made. It is unbelievable!

Well, he that work has to eat. Veterans/Military have sold their lives to the nation and I think they deserve flexibilty and the best.

Hats off to DEKA technology. It is great indeed as they helped our soldiers, who lost so much for our country, to be able to have artificial limbs which will be helping them to do their daily chores and bring life back to reality a little bit more. I will say that the DEKA technology has done a big deal for our country by helping our veterans in this way.

You are right, this is good to know that hope is not completely lost for injured veterans.

Besides artificial limbs, I think the electronics industry has a lot to give to the veterans in terms of innovation. Domestic robots is one popular category of robots which are designed to assist people in their everyday lives at home. This ranges from cleaning and washing to cooking and even reading out the newspaper. These robots can be of real help to disabled veterans.

The DEKA technology is a very good invention giving back hope and life to the veterans but the big issue is the availability and affordability.

Thanks for the link! Amazing stuff.

Regarding the legal issues with the FDA, I thought the Army got away with more stuff than others (regarding FDA approval). Don't they?

@Tvotapka, These technology products you pointed out and which Barbara also noted are only a few of the innovations available to veterans. There are many more devices and other technology developments, including drugs and advances in medical care, that veterans and others are using nowadays. As Barbara noted, the least we can do is ensure these are available at affordable costs to people we involve in wars.
