Caleb Rivera, age 21, lost his leg above the knee to osteosarcoma (bone cancer) 15 years ago. He never felt comfortable in the prosthetic limbs he was fit with over the years, and they were not durable enough for his active life. Frustrated, Caleb traded his prosthesis for crutches, and for four years that’s how he walked…..until a few weeks ago. A chance meeting between Caleb’s pastor and a POA employee led to this exciting day – when Caleb reclaimed his independence!

We fit Caleb with our patented NPS (vacuum assisted) double wall socket. Read more about it in the Products section of our website.
Here’s a photo of Caleb’s finished socket….a walking testimony of faith! Isaiah 40:31 “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
