  • The evolution of prosthetics was grown to include sophisticated knees that function much like a human knee to carbon fiber blades worn by the sprinters.
  • In sitting volleyball, a player must have some part of the upper body, bottom to shoulders, in contact with the floor at the moment of ball contact. A player does not have to be in contact with the floor at all times.
