Stumpless Beauties

Some devotees are not ‘into’ it, others find total amputations especially attractive. This radical type of amputation is nearly always the result of bone cancer, and the technical term for it is ex- or disarticulation, meaning the removal of the entire limb bone from the joint, as well as of all muscle tissue. As a result, the amputee will have no or virtually no stump, at least in the case of hip- or shoulder disarticulation, since knee and elbow disarticulations also exist.
Prosthetic options with some degree of comfort are severely limited for these amputees, often making them do without one. From the devotee perspective, this makes leg amputees of this type very attractively skilled in crutching and one-legged hopping, and video examples of this, as well as pictures, can be found here.
