KD Amputee ready to get a new knee/leg.

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am 43, male 6'1" 175 pounds and have been a KD amputee since I was 19 years old. I am in the market to get a new leg made, was looking at getting some feedback on the best knees out there for a KD, and if you had any recommendations for places to get this done. I live in Ohio but willing to travel a few states to get the best leg & service. I have read some of the other post about KD knees, but wanted to start a fresh one, and see if there was any new thoughts or ideas on it. Thanks for any help on this topic.

I don't know about knees. I've always heard that the fake knee is what makes a KD so hard to deal with. I do have a friend who is a KD. He uses a C-leg and walks flawlessly. He goes to a major prosthetic company in OKC.

Othotic Prosthetic Center is who I go to, was featured on Discovery Channel a few years back. Located in Fairfax VA and Rockville MD. Elliot or Ben are both excellent.
