By JT - Jul 04,2016 - Last updated at Jul 04,2016

AMMAN — SwissLeg, a social enterprise based in Lugano, Switzerland, that develops “high-tech” prosthetic limbs for amputees, recently organised a charity prosthetic workshop in Al Bashir Hospital, it said in a statement sent to The Jordan Times.

The event, organised in cooperation with the National Committee for Demining and Rehabilitation, addressed the needs of 16 amputees, who were injured by landmines and received free SwissLeg prosthesis.

SwissLeg also provided specialised training sessions to prosthetic technicians from Al Bashir Hospital and the Royal Medical Services, the statement said.
