Hannah’s second socket fitting recently took place at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital with her prosthetist, Caroline. Watch here and hear how Hannah’s prosthetic leg created a turning point in her life.
Personalisation within paediatric prosthetics is one of the best ways to help young children accept their prosthetic as their own. Recently, four-year-old Carter Carrington was fitted with a bespoke, Aston Villa prosthetic leg, designed by Steeper prosthetist Stephen Cox, at the Portsmouth Enablement Centre.
At 15:04 on Wednesday 7th September was the moment Hannah bought home her first prosthetic leg. After suffering with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome for several years, Hannah recently underwent surgery to have her leg amputated. Being young with a disability has been difficult for Hannah, she has come up against the preconceived perceptions that people have about amputees. However, with the help of her Steeper prosthetist, Caroline Clark at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital and her new Trulife Seattle Kinetic Edge Foot, Hannah is quickly getting back on her feet and enjoying doing the things that have been absent from her life for so long.
