When Greg Brennan was completely incinerated in a factory fire, it seemed like he would be a pile of ash for the rest of his life. It seemed like all hope was lost, but then something incredible happened: A team of hardworking doctors was able to use revolutionary new medical treatments to help Greg by replacing his body with 15 prosthetic arms.
Amazing. This is an incredible testament to the power of modern medicine.
Greg’s synthetic arms are state-of-the-art prosthetics sculpted out of 3D-printed plastic and stainless steel. They look just like real arms, and Greg now has 15 of them to replace his limbs, torso, internal organs, and head. Doctors say it may take a bit of time for Greg to get used to having 15 arms and no other body parts, but after the adjustment period he should be able to enjoy a full and happy life.
It’s medical miracles like this that remind you of the limitless potential of human innovation. If Greg’s entire body had been completely incinerated even a year ago, he might not have pulled through, but this cutting-edge procedure has enabled him to become a loose conglomeration of artificial limbs that can live happily on the floor of his home. It’s incredible news for anyone who has been completely incinerated in an accident!
In some ways Greg’s 15 prosthetic arms are superior compared to normal flesh-and-bone arms. While a regular person only has 10 fingers, Greg now has 150! Yup, he’s basically a real-life cyborg in the best possible way.
For the next few months, Greg will be undertaking physical therapy every day to learn about using the 15 arms he has become. He still faces a tough road ahead until he’s able to resume his old life, but thanks to his doctors and the 15 prosthetic arms that have replaced his body, the future looks bright for Greg. Incredible!
