What part of society have prosthetics affected?
The theme for National History Day this year is Innovation in History: Impact and Change. I am focusing on the invention of prosthetic limbs as my innovation, and I know that they have had a large impact on society by allowing people to live longer, better lives. What part of society would you say prosthetics have affected the most(ex: banking, education, sports, government)? Thank you! I see what you're saying, however, what are specific examples of how the use of prosthetics have affected society?
