at speeds of more than 50 miles per hour and farther than 30 meters with accuracy. The experience has been overwhelming, truly astonishing and rewarding. So we now can offer the COBRA Baseball Throwing TD. Never in the history of prosthetics, to the best of my knowledge, has such a thing been accomplished. I believe that the COBRA is a revolutionary step forward in upper-extremity prosthetics. But don’t believe me. It’s available to check out for yourself. Check it out, and I believe that you will be as amazed as I have been in being able to “throw again.” Finally, if you have an innovative idea that you think deserves to be further developed, please get in touch with me. I’m glad to be a resource to anyone with a prosthetic challenge or new idea, and I will respond to your e-mail. Become two-handed again, and play hard!

He has been designing highperformance prosthetic components for 30 years and is the president and CEO of TRS Inc.
