Paging Steve Austin, White Courtesy Phone Please

BBCnews is carrying this report detailing new developments in prothesis research. By studying the way deer antler grows through skin without causing infection, scientists have developed a way to attach artificial limbs directly to the bones that will support them. This allows for a far better fitting, more effective replacement to be used. The technique has already been successfully used on fingers and toes, and scientists hope to begin trials on large limbs in the near future.
