    What prostheses do you use

    Anyone have any prostheses they recommend. Would be nice to review these places, Save a lot of time with trial and error. I mean years can be wasted dealing with the wrong prostheses. I've went to Amken orthopedic. I rate them about a 4, very outdated Astepahead. Very updated all the latest technology, rate them about an 8. They would only do pin lock system for some reason. I asked the. About a elevated vacuum system and they steered me away from that with no explanation, Prosthetics in motion. About a 6. Started off good but went south, this guy been trying to get my fix for 2yrs now,very frustrating . . Ready to just pay out of pocket for a socket and put it on my old foot for now from somewhere. Don't think insurance goin to pay for another for a min, and I can't take another year trying to get this thing to fit

    More legs!

    How many legs can you have the fit at one time. I currently have a elevated being adjusted for the past year that I can't really wear yet but I want to get it right, but for the meantime i would also like to have a pin lock system also. How do I go about this. Do I have to pay out my pocket?
  9. I'm currently in a harmony for 1 out of 5 days so far, don't know if it's the liner but I can hardly bend my knee when walking like I'm getting kick back. Go back Friday and see what can be done. If not I'm goin back to a pin lock with alpha hybrid. Those liners feel so much better than any I've tried. They made my pin lick with an iceros which for me was very uncomfortable. I tried it with my alpha hybrid and got a world of difference
  10. Every prosthesis should have there patients watch this, her vids cleared a lot of things up for me https://m.youtube.com/user/AmputeeOT
