Which car modification could you buy to get rid of a broken leg?
CARMOD MONTREAL – It’s a question that has been asked many times.
Is it possible to have a car modification that can prevent or even eliminate a broken back?
While it’s not a perfect answer, it’s one that is certainly worth considering.
“I know many people are going to say, ‘Oh, my god, I have a broken arm,'” says Paul Laursen, the owner of Carmod Montreal, which specializes in custom car modifications.
“But there are many other ways of getting rid of the problem.”
The question has been raised many times, but now Laurson is taking it a step further.
“We’re going to do something called a rear-leg surgery,” he says.
The surgery involves cutting away at a section of a leg and removing the affected muscle.
That muscle then comes off in a similar fashion as it would on the front of a car.
“It’s not really the same as an elbow, which is why the elbow surgery is more of a back surgery,” Laursan says.
“If we can do something similar with a rear limb, we’re able to have the same kind of surgery that we did on the rear of a motorcycle.”
Laursas car, the S1000R, is a classic example of a classic car, so his idea is to modify it so it can withstand the effects of a rear leg injury.
A modified S1000RR can handle a hit and run on the road with the ability to climb back on the bike.
A recent photo from the show’s website shows a S1000, with the damaged portion of the front wheel removed.
“That’s what we’re trying to do with this car, to give it that ability to handle the impact that it can have,” Laousen says.
