    Hi from pre-amp in uk

    Lost my leg in about the same way, it was a crushing accident at my work. Had a steel bar roll off a fork lift, and two weeks later due to compartment syndrome they amputated above knee. It has been five years next month and getting along pretty well. Have been on my current knee for about a year. hang in there. Any questions feel free to email me jamesrwolf@gmail.com or post here.

    Donate used Knee

    What is a good site for donating a used prosthetic? Have many pieces and parts now, hate to see them go to waste. Total knee and veri-flex foot.

    Scuba Trip

    Pictures from a recent trip to Honduras. Thought you guys would get a kick out of them. Did 7 open water dives, and one night dive. 90 feet was the deepest.

    New AK Setup...

    Been on a Rheo for two years, and just gave the ok to retro fit the knee with the Proprio foot. Keep me updated to how you like the set up! Looks like it's the way to go at this time. Jim Wolf
  13. Following your posting, have been a ARK for 3 years now, have a suction socket with a rheo knee, have always had problems with the suction socket, but my stump is too long to go with the pin system. Always get pain in the groin area also, some times not to bad, but it does slow me down thats for sure. Just tried a system from Otto Bock called the proseal, that failed very bad.

    Tips for proseal socket

    Well I have had this socket for three weeks, and the seal ring has fallen out 2 times, its on its way back to Otto Bock again. Hope I didn't make a mistake in getting this socket.
  15. Received a new socket yesterday, its a proseal socket from otto bock, with the e harmony vacuum assist. Anyone using this could give me some tips on the use of this socket? Thanks in advance
