At the Experimental Center for Prosthetics
and Personnel Training (established at RSC Energia in 1990),
testers, who are specially selected from among disabled
persons, are fitted with newly developed and bench-tested
prosthetic designs before the final decision is made to
start mass production of these modules.
It is also here that prosthetics specialists
from various regions of the country are being trained in
advanced technologies and fabrication of prostheses from
new structural elements. Students of the Kaliningrad Space
Engineering and Technology College, where a division for
orthopedic and rehabilitation technology was opened in 1992,
also get their hands-on training here.
