    Finding someone as an amputee

    I think that we all, as amputees, will have our vulnerable moments..even if we are married or not. I know, I still do...I think that is just a basic nature. well thankyou for all your replies i guess its just gunna take some getting used to

    amputee

    Lizzie, you made me smile. Well ... there's a certain element of truth about it, isn't there? being a amputee has it affected your confidence with the opposite sex as it has me to be honest its knocked me for six

    echelon foot

    Hi Darren i have been using the Echelon for some time now and find it really great, especially on slopes both up and down. It has a really smooth rollover, and feels like i have my old leg back. I know it sounds odd but the moving of the ankle feels so natural. It was a real WOW moment when i first used the Echelon. I really recommend it , if you get a chance to try it you will love it. Regards Saker thanx for ya reply i shall get one ordered and let ya know how i get on

    driving

    Hi again Darren. I have the left foot accelerator and at first it was freaky to use, but I got used to it. When you have no other choice and dont have 800 bucks for hand controls, the 400 dollar option is what I chose. I felt so much better after being able to get back into the car and felt more independent. so.... go for it. looks like i be playing bumper cars for a while then hahahaha

    hi im new here

    Hey Darren, Sorry must have missed this post; I have got this knee now, all I can say is it knocks my smart adaptive back to reserve. I have only had this knee a few months and have gone further faster better & safer than I thought was possible, My hobbies involve bagging hills /mountains and getting to way out the way places in the middle of nowhere (yes I’m a sad old git who loves hiking). This knee has already taken me to places that I wouldn’t have dreamed about getting to on my old leg, in all weathers, a few weeks ago I was up in a remote section of the cheviot hills in snow, ice, strong winds not a problem in this leg in fact I even treated it to a dip in a stream which I had to cross. Fantastic knee that’s all I can say, I luv it. There is a person on this site who can give you a lot more info on the knee as he played a major part in getting into the UK market (thanks Ian I know you are to modest to mention it) One last thing I often hike in Otterburn ranges (army training grounds) and talking to some of the training staff up there it would seem that this knee seems to be very popular with the troops that have lost legs out in Iraq and Afghanistan in fact I believe that two aka”s have returned to active front line service on this knee which is a fantastic achievement, and for me there can be no better recommendation. I hope this helps ……………………..Mick (kx06 fan club) well thanku for your reply coll the knee sounds amazing wow carnt wait to get it as currently im on my first nhs belt fitment leg .i look forward now to putting the kx06 to the test thanx uve made my day so can you walk downstairs foot over foot and walk up and down slopes god im noset arnt i ???????? so is it easy to operate and whats stance mode????????/
