Tie your shoes with one hand.

An amputee shows the way to tie shoe laces with one hand or one arm. He has no prosthetic help meaning he doesn't use a hook. This can be a huge challenge in life for persons with missing limbs or in need of adapted living situations. Shoelaces are tough enough with two hands, let alone one. This is a great first hand account of the strategy in tying one's shoes without a prosthetic. This is an adaptive equipment tutorial for handicapped, disabled or individuals that have lost limbs to amputation. The prosthetic arm outfitted with a hook or hand can be body powered or myoelectric. The operation is important to ensure healthy living and daily tasks like dressing yourself.
