Such modern prosthetic hands can range in price from $15,000 to $100,000, said John N. Billock, head of the Orthotics & Prosthetics Rehabilitation Engineering Centre in Warren, Ohio.

Forty years ago, hooks were considered superior to prosthetics in the shape of hands, but that has changed with advances made in electrically powered prosthetic hands, he said.

John N. Billock, head of the Orthotics & Prosthetics Rehabilitation Engineering Centre in Warren, Ohio, and a pioneer in the field, said a hook for a hand would "definitely be considered a weapon."

"You could brutalize somebody with it," he said. "You can put somebody's eyes out or knock out their teeth."
He said hooks are typically made of stainless steel or aluminum. The price of prosthetics in place of hands can range from $15,000 to $100,000, he said.

"They're human beings," said John Billock. "And we need to help them."

Billock is the clinical director of Orthotics and Prosthetics Rehabilitation Engineering Centre in Howland. And the devastation in Haiti has moved him to help in every way he can.
"There is a growing number of adults and children losing their limbs as a result of infections," Billock said. "Even post-injury because of not having antibiotics."
So to help, Billock and his staff are sorting and assembling parts that they've gathered of prosthetic limbs and sending them to Haiti. Many of the parts have come from patients of the center.
"Patients of ours, when they've either been refit with a new prosthesis or somebody has unfortunately passed away, and components have been donated to us," said Billock. "This is our opportunity to put them to good use."
In all, Billock said he's collected between $20,000 and $30,000 in prosthetic parts.
That's not the only way he's helping out. He is heading up a committee that is raising funds through local Rotary Cubs. Rotary International is sending shelter boxes to Haiti, and they include everything someone would need to survive, like a tent.
"The immediate need right now, from an email I received just last night, is that they need over 200,000 tents," Billock said.
