Alex, Hip-Disarticulate Amputee, has a Near-Perfect Gait!

Alex became a hip-disarticulate amputee after a horrific workplace accident. When he arrived at POA a few weeks ago he was getting around as best he could using a prosthesis that was outdated and limited his mobility. We fit him with a NPS vacuum assisted socket system and a C-Leg microprocessor knee, and soon he was walking with confidence–and a near-perfect gait! Today he flew home to Mexico, eager to get back to doing all the things he once enjoyed. ‪#‎NoBoundaries‬
