On the surface, it is a nondescript workshop inside a refurbished building at Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
Yet the 3,700 sq ft centre – about the size of three five-room HDB flats – is where hope blooms for people who have lost limbs to injury or disease.
TTSH’s Foot Care and Limb Design Centre might be little-known, but it is the only centre with a specialised workshop which makes and assembles customised prosthetics.
“There’s a design for everything,” says Mr Trevor Binedell, FLC’s unit head of the prosthetics and orthotics department.
According to Mr Binedell, the centre fits around 300 patients a year.
