U.S. Ambassador to Korea Mark Lippert is attracting attention with an unusual brace on his left arm after being treated for wounds sustained in a knife attack last month.
The exoskeletal appearance of the brace has prompted some commentary online, and Lippert posted a message on Facebook recently describing the brace.
"It is a dynamic splint that allows movement of my hand while immobilizing my wrist," he wrote. "It is very comfortable and has made a huge difference in my recovery as I am able to hold things in my hand."
Doctors at Severance Hospital, who treated Lippert, had the brace made for him when he was released after several days in hospital.
