New hydraulic Leg


New hydraulic Leg

08/05/15

Hi all

I got my new hydraulic leg today, very wobbly like I’m walking on sponge. Makes a hissing sound when I walk but that’s just air in between my grey liner and the white plastic socket. (At least it’s not making a farting sound.)

I was shown how to go up and down a slope. Up is great because of the tilting ankle I now have but down was scary as my knee kept bending and I thought I was going to fall. Also with this new leg I can now crouch!.

It’s still boney around the crotch area, but that can be sorted with sponge. I was also shown how to walk down stairs. where as before you are told to put your bad foot first then step down. I had to learn to walk normally one foot over the other, and again I was frightened my knee was going to give as I stepped off. But with the help of railings I did it, just got to keep practicing now.

Below is a photo of me crouching (not laying an egg).
