Jennifer is attractive active, athletic and alive; no easy achievement after a traumatic motor vehicle accident resulted in the amputation of her leg below the knee. Jennifer went through painful skin grafts and rehabilitation over many months. Finally, she was ready physically for prosthetic care, but her emotional state was fragile. Doctors referred her to us for treatment.
We took the time to provide Jennifer with more than a device, we provided her with compassionate support, advocacy and follow-up to ensure she achieved her full potential. Jennifer went through a series of fittings and follow up to try various components to optimize her function and activity level, as well as something very important to her: her cosmesis.
Jennifer wanted a foot that would allow her to wear various heel heights and a covering that allowed her to wear skirts and shorts without drawing too much attention to her prosthesis.
