“My New Leg”
Steve Kurzman is a user experience researcher with a Ph.D. in cultural anthropology from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
He is also a below-knee amputee.
My New Leg is a blog, or online diary, about his experience of getting a new prosthesis and the process involved in how amputees get prostheses. The goal of the blog is to document the delivery of prosthetic limbs in the American health care field as well as to report back from the clinic on the personal experience of wearing one and getting a new one.
