Walking Once Again
This young man had a debilitating lower-leg bone disease and after living with it for almost three years, took the brave (and ultimately, life-saving) decision to have his left leg amputated below the knee!
He came to see us about manufacturing a prosthetic lower leg. We assessed his needs and set about the project without delay. Measuring, making a mould from mid-calf to below the knee.
We formed and finished a comfortable socket, constructed a “shin, ankle and foot” and made sure the fit was perfect. We gave him a few pointers in walking and within two days, he was fully mobile and once more, involved in the mainstream of his business.
