A few months back a patient came to us after having problems with his current prosthetic provider. The patient is a congenital bilateral amputee. The patient is a great walker who walks daily unassisted without any help or cane. He came to us in traditional mechanical knee units and was hesitant to go to computer controlled microprocessor knee units. Working closely with his doctors, insurance and the patient we were able to get authorization for bilateral OttoBock C-Leg 4 units, carbon fiber prosthetic feet and new total contact sockets with flexible brims and of the sockets are padded internally for comfort. We had him up and walking comfortably within minutes of delivering. We were excited to be able to deliver such good looking, advanced, and well working legs for him.
