anything new in prosthetics?

I am 54 years old and didn't even know what I had until I was 42. I still don't understand some of the terms used here. My right toes were amputated when I was 11, and upon healing was fitted with a Canadian ???????? prosthesis. Now that my one good knee is shot, hips hurt, and general mailaise has set in; is there anything you people can teach an old dog? How about groups in the Indianapolis area?

ps, I always wondered if my condition was partially why I have a foot fetish?

Please describe the canadain prosthesis you are speaking of. I have seen one in which the foot fits into a fake lower leg (with fake foot) . There is a hinge at the pace the foot fits in, which is equal to the knee (of the unaffected leg).
