Accidents in which people lose an arm or leg often take place in communities with large numbers of poor people.
人们遭遇一场事故,然后因此失去一只胳膊或者一条腿,这种事情经常发生在有很多穷人的社区中。
In such areas, victims may not have enough money to pay for costly prosthetic replacements.But two men from Belarus have used simple and easily available materials to make a prosthetic arm.Almost anyone can build one of the limbs at home.
在这些地区,事故受害者可能没有那么多钱来购买昂贵的义肢置换。不过有两名白俄罗斯人却解决了这个问题,他们利用一些可以轻易获得的简单材料就将义肢制作出来。几乎所有人在家就可以自己动手操作。
Oleg Galtsev was four years old when his father Sergei lost his arm in an explosion on a military firing range.At the time, Sergei Galtsev was an army captain in the former Soviet Union.
奥列格·盖尔特瑟夫才四岁的时候,他的爸爸赛奇在军事火炮射击场遭遇了一场爆炸事故,当场便失去了一只胳膊。当时赛奇·盖尔特瑟夫还在前苏联任军队上尉。
Almost 30 years later, he is using a prosthetic arm designed by his son and another engineer.
而大约30年后,他竟用起了儿子和另外一位工程师共同设计的义肢。
He says “They gave me the prosthesis to test for three weeks.I used it to saw firewood, cut the grass and to do many other things in the field.”
赛奇表示,“他们把这个义肢给我,让我测试三个周。于是我用它来在地里砍柴、割草,还会干其他活。”
The mechanical arm looks nothing like the new prosthetics available in industrial countries.But it is easy to make, has a low cost, and does not need much maintenance.
这只机械臂看起来一点都不像工业化国家新制造的义肢。但是制作过程很简单,成本也低,而且还不需要经常维护。
Oleg Galtsev says the device is designed for people who do not feel at ease with electronics.
奥列格·盖尔特瑟夫表示,这套装置就是为不能自如使用电子产品的人设计的。
Galtsev says it took two years to design the prosthesis.They used a 3-D printer to create some parts and bought others online.
盖尔特瑟夫还称,设计这个义肢总共花了他两年的时间。义肢一部分用3D打印机制作完成,其余部分都是在网上购买的。
The creators did not ask for a legal patent to control ownership of the device.In fact, they have published directions on how to make it online.They say it costs just one-tenth of the price of other mechanical prostheses.
两位设计者并没有申请专利保护,以控制装置的所有权。事实上,他们已经将制作方法公布到网上去了。二人称,他们的义肢制作成本仅仅是其他机械式义肢的十分之一。
Sergei Galtsev says he can now perform many outdoor activities, including using a chain saw to cut tree limbs.
赛奇·盖尔特瑟夫称自己现在已经可以完成许多户外活动,比如使用电锯来修剪树枝。
“I am proud that my son decided to tackle this problem.There are many people who really need this device in their daily lives.”
“我觉得很自豪,因为我儿子决定去解决这个问题。有很多人在日常生活中都非常需要这套装置。”
Oleg Galtsev says many people have watched videos of his prosthetic arm invention on YouTube.He says he hopes his work will influence others to invent new prosthetic devices.
奥列格·盖尔特瑟夫称,很多人都在YouTube上观看了义肢制作过程的视频。同时他还表示,希望自己设计的产品可以影响其他人,发明更多新型的义肢。
