Prosthetic Art Designs above are Dan Horkey’s contribution for the Wounded In Action, an Art Exhibition Advancements in Orthopeadics. Since there has never been an exhibit featuring personalized prosthetic art, Dan Horkey had the opportunity to name his exhibit
“Innovated Arts for Prosthetics.”
As seen during the 75th Annual American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS). Following the AAOS, the Prosthetic Art of Dan Horkey went on tour around the U.S. with Wounded In Action Exhibition between 2010-2012.
- Above Knee Prosthetic, American Flag and the Eagle tattoo was produced using hand painting and airbrushing techniques, reflect the spirit and unity in America.

As It Stands Today
As of November 2012, the VA had curtailed our options after we successfully delivered 12 purchase orders. After a lengthy review by the VA, our methods were not in the definition of what they need to provide a veteran, and Congress would need to change the law.
VA said, It’s Now at the Discretion of Each VA Hospital
The VA National Director of Orthotics and Prosthetics told me, a letter was sent out to all VA Hospitals, stating VA Central Office PSAS in Wash. D.C. would not continue to fund our services. It would be left to the discretion of each facility, and they would need to provide it from their budget.
The issue still stands, because most VA Hospitals are not participating in our Program, or Services.
Dan Horkey began looking for support on this issue, and contacted his Congressmen Derek Kilmer of Washington. A letter was sent to the Veterans Affairs (PSAS) in the summer of 2014. The Congressmen asked what law or statue is prohibiting VA Central Office from continuing to provide Veterans with Dan Horkey Approved Options. We are still waiting for a reply from Central Office of Veterans Affairs, Prosthetic and Sensory Aids (PSAS) in Wash. D.C.

For the reason above, I’m seeking to form partnerships with large and small businesses, military organizations, non-profits and celebrities to help take care of financial funding for Veterans.
Normally, people are a little hesitant when they see someone wearing a prosthetic, but when people see my flame design; it’s an automatic icebreaker.

Dan, I want to thank you and your guys for the outstanding work you did on my leg. Being able to sport my Vietnam Army Airborne Ranger badge and Phoenix tattoo has made me less self conscious about the leg…in the 40 years I’ve been an amputee, I’ve never worn shorts…I just went out a bought two pair.
