paralympian prosthesis

Jacqueline Schmit

I had a request today from a physical therapist about a prosthesis for one
of his patients. She currently uses an above elbow one (style not known
because I haven’t met her yet…) and she’s trying to get into the cycling
event for the paralympics. She was told her current prosthesis doesn’t meet
their criteria – any idea where we could find out more information about
what is acceptable/usable in competition? I looked on the international
paralympics website but it wasn’t very helpful. Thanks.
