Baku, April 24, AZERTAC

Azerbaijani soldiers and officers who became disabled in the April battles have been supplied with high-tech prostheses at the directions of First Vice-President Mehriban Aliyeva.

These high-tech prostheses were chosen after careful examination of individual needs of the soldiers and officers who lost parts of their body in the April battles in 2016.

At a meeting with a group of the disabled soldiers and officers on April 3, First Vice-President Mehriban Aliyeva gave instructions to supply them with artificial replacements for missing body parts to help them regain or maintain their mobility.

At Mehriban Aliyeva`s directions, the disabled soldiers and officers were supplied with prostheses and manufactured by the world`s leading prosthetics companies, including German Otto Bock and British RSL Steeper.

The prostheses orthopaedic devices supplied to the disabled soldiers and officers are:
