McKay artifcial left arm, United Kingdom, 1924-1930

Different tools could be attached to end of this prosthetic left arm which was made for a worker in a factory-based industry. The short metal forearm makes lifting objects easier. The elbow can be locked in one of seven positions by a catch on the inside of the arm. Made for a person who had their left arm amputated below the elbow, this type of arm is named after its maker, The McKay Artificial Limb Company.
