Prosthetics & Orthotics, Inc.
Henry is a 68 year old active man. He is an insulin dependent diabetic and
double below-the-knee amputee secondary to foot ulcerations. He suffered for years with chronic ulcers on his feet which were recurring and eventually led to the bilateral amputations. He lost his left leg below the knee 1 year ago and is wearing his temporary BK prosthesis on this side. The lost his right leg below the knee 1 ½ years ago and is wearing
his definitive BK prosthesis on this side.
Considering all his past health problems, he has done very well since both of the amputations and has graduated from the wheelchair and walker to using 2 prostheses and walking with
no assistive devices. He is now more active than ever, and is living out his potential K3 activity level. He is completely independent, getting outside the house, going to doctor’s appointments and getting around the community. He has not quite reached his goal of driving yet, but is certainly on his way. We are proud of Henry and love seeing his smiling face!
