Roman Kostomarov is still in the hospital. Now the skater is in rehab. They select a model of prosthesis for him. Not everything goes smoothly. As it became known, the Olympic champion suffered a nervous breakdown.
There are new details about the status of Roman Kostomarov. “They are putting prostheses on him. They cannot be put on fresh wounds. They must heal. This is at least six months,” an informed source said.
Psychologists work with a man in a separate room. “His condition is mentally unstable, there are nervous breakdowns. Psychologically, he still cannot socialize in society,” Sport24 quoted a source familiar with the situation.
Earlier, rehabilitation specialist Konstantin Ternovoy specified that Kostomarov would initially use a simple mechanical prosthesis, and later a bionic one. “Now we need to get rid of all the consequences of infections in the body. This is a very long process, but modern technologies can allow you to run, jump and skate,” Ternovoy said.
In turn, sports doctor Andrey Zvonkov said that it would take more time to prepare for prosthetic hands than for legs. “It’s easier with legs than with hands. After the prosthetics, the first thing Roman will have to think about is how to learn to walk, learn to eat, hug his wife, hold something in his hands, etc. Still, these are not hands, but claws, metal”, quotes a specialist MSK1.RU.
