    I find it to be the very best product for amputees. I have used it since the ACA convention in 2006. It is fantastic. JudyH (Now JudyT)

    knee walker

    This may not be of interest to you but my invention is a sling that hangs in a walker you put your knee in the sling and you have complete mobility. I invented it when I ran into a hotel room that was supposed to be handicapped accessible and wasn't. My wheelchair would not go thru the bathroom door. With it I could go out the door to the car, fold the walker and pull it across into the car. I can go to the store, pump gas and it travels beautifully. It is great at night when you need to use the restroom.

  9. Ed, I use a metal liner drying rack. It is like 2 circles connected by a thin dowel. it almost looks like a hat stand but the liner dries overnight. I found the ad in InMotion magazine. I think it was $20 JudyH

    Caution for Mirror Therapy

    I discovered, by accident, that putting a vibrating pillow either under my good foot or on the end of the stump that it confuses the nerves or directs their attention elsewhere. JudyH

    Are you active with your kind of amputation?

    Judy, the foot sounds like an Echelon and you're going to love that and the vacuum suspension. I think it's about 80% of a real leg. I think the name is Profero or something like that - when I talk to my prothetist I'll ask JudyH

    This is a little late but it was very scary for me. As some of you know my husband of 43 years died in July of 2005 and I lost my right leg in November of 2005. Double whammy. I got my first leg in Jan 2006. In February 2007 I decided that I did not want to be alone for the rest of my life. I paid for one month of Eharmony and I met a wonderful man. We were both up front about our disabilities. Bob was going blind and a life long diabetic. I mentioned my amputation. We answered 28 of the 29 questions exactly the same. B ob was also the only man who replied that was not concerned about body type. Neither of us will ever b e mistaken for twiggy. We have been together ever since. We cannot marry or I will lose my Social Security but we had a commitment ceremony with a minister. I figure we are married before God and I edon't really care what the state thinks. I will be changing my name. I guess I was very lucky and I have never been happier in my life. JudyH
  13. WE will be flying to Las Vewgas in January for a training seminar. We are taking Spirit airlines and I need to find out what we can and cannot take as medical necessities. Does anyone have any info? JudyH

    Are you active with your kind of amputation?

    Mary, I haven't been on the forum for almost a year due to all kinds of medical problems between me and my husband. I am very active with my BK amputation. I almost never even use a cane (unless by back is giving me a prob lem). I usually don't think about it. I put my leg on in the morning carry a couple extra socks in my purse and go for it. Until my husband became ill we walked the dogs 2 miles a day. I am getting a new foot and suspension system in the next couple of weeks. The foot (can't remember the name) automatially adjusts for ramps,stairs, rough ground and !!!! heel height.I hav e had a pin system since Jan 2006 but my stump is shrinking some and I have been walking out of my liner. I am going with a vacuum system this time. When I had my amputation the surgeon told me I two decisions to make 1. did I want to live or die and 2. did I want him to cut it off in 2 inch incrementss or cut it off at the best spot. I said I wanted to live and he had one shot at it to get it right. I have b een very satisfied. JudyH
