POA recently fit Paralympic and WSF Para-Snowboard World Cup Champion Evan Strong with a custom NPS vacuum socket.

Before he left, we gave the prosthesis one final check. Stan and Mike were enlisted to lift him upside-down while clipped into his boots and snowboard – our version of an “inverted aerial.” A perfect example of the power of elevated vacuum!

Evan was very pleased with the outcome and looks forward to trying it out on the slopes.
