AmputeeOT asks, why can’t amputees buy some prosthetic supplies on their own, online?
I have run into a little bit of the same problem with certain ventilator supplies. I see the sense in channelling purchases of some items through medical equipment specialists. Some parts are too technical for users to evaluate and select by themselves. But some replacement parts are very standardized and interchangeable, and we ought to be able to buy them at bargain prices on eBay if we want.
