Left upper limb prosthesis for a child with a very short arm and small hand, three fingers, (absent thumb and index). Two valves are sited on the inner side of the socket, operated by the rudimentary fingers. CO2 gas powered 'Otto Bock' split-hook. There is a strip of reversed chrome leather on the under surface of the forearm and on the elbow ball, to prevent the limb sliding when the child is resting on a desk or table. Made by Steeper c. 1972.
