The exhibition Man-Made Man – Technology and Medicine opened on May 10th, 2017 - March 4th, 2018 at the National Technical Museum.
The exhibition introduces the visitor not only to the history and the present of prosthetics as a specific field, but also to the use of technological substitutes across all fields of medicine. It uncovers ample collaboration of experts in medicine, electronics, cybernetics, mechanics, statics, design, and other fields, which precedes the development of unique prostheses and makes it possible.The exhibition is organized in cooperation with Charles University and the National Medical Library.
Expert guarantor of part of the Exhibition Materials in Prosthetics is Dr. Tomáš Suchý, the Head of the Department of Composite and Carbon Materials of the IRSM of the CAS.
