Preparing for a Prosthesis

On July 8, 2012, 17-year-old Kaleb “Fred” Langdale of Moore Haven, Florida was taking a dip in the Caloosahatchee River with his friends. As he swam across the river, Kaleb heard his friends shout that there was an alligator in the water. Although Fred was able to save his own life, he lost his arm in the attack. Dan Stremka, a prosthetist at Hanger, Inc. explains the physical therapy Fred is undergoing in preparation for an electronic prosthetic arm.
