    pressure wound - socket

    Hi, My name is Isabel and I live in Belgium. I lost my leg (hip desarticulation) due to an accident. I have been facing serious problems related with a kind of "permanent" wound pressure. This is due to the fact that the bone is to close to the skin. I want to believe that the solution must be on a new socket since there is not must left to cut. Nor in Belgium neither in Netherlands they were able to find me a solution. I am wonderring if someone could advice me on how to procede or recommend a center which could have some expertise on this kind of problems. Please. Thanks in advance for all your attention, Isabel

    Hip disarticulation

    Hi again, I had a hip desarticulation following a accident. I would like to find out where to go to have the best and updated prosthetics. At the momment I am working in Brussels (Belgium). I visited some centers here but they were not able to offer me improvements. I have found a center http://www.awardprosthetics.com/frames.html the problem is...it is in Canada. I am sure that I can find something in Europe. I would appreciate any info that anyone might have. Best wishes, Isabel
