Bilateral Below the Elbow Limb Amputee

Jason Koger was driving a four-wheeler on his family's farm in 2008 when he ran into a downed power line that held 7800 volts of electricity. Both hands were severely burned and had to be amputated in order to save his life. An avid outdoorsman, Jason now relies on two sets of prostheses: body-powered arms with hooks for hunting and working on the farm, and multi-articulating i-limb quantum hands for fine motor skills and cyborg looks.
