  1. Hello from Michigan, I am a double AK and have been using prosthetics for over 40 years. My early legs, (circa 1969), were fabricated from blocks of wood and the knee was nothing more than a hinge, (wooden legs are very heavy). Over the years the knees became safer with the addition of various cam systems to keep the knee from buckling when extended and the sockets were no longer being made from wood. Well, now I am getting a set of c-legs. I will be picking them up on Tuesday, Nov 26th. I have had them on but have yet to use them in the "real world", I have only used them between parallel bars over very short distances in a small room, (they sure are different from what I am used to). I have seen numerous Youtube videos of obviously experienced users who do amazing things on their legs. I am curious about first impressions and early use. If there are any double amputees who can share their early experiences with their c-legs I would sure appreciate it. Take care everyone and I will let you all know how I am progressing with my new legs. ERK
