ensuring that they can afford the on-going level of care they need is one of their primary concerns when providing medical reports."
Abdo recommended for Ian to be fitted with an Ottobock C-Leg 4 knee joint, a prosthesis designed for safety and support in everyday situations. Starting to familiarise himself with his new prosthesis, Ian’s journey with The London Prosthetic Centre began.
The turning point
After visiting Abdo at The London Prosthetic Centre for fittings and gait adjustments, Ian’s outlook now beams of optimism and confidence as he eagerly anticipates what the future holds. “It’s a learning curve having to adapt to my new prosthesis and I know it’s going to be a slow process, but this is a new beginning for me that I’m looking forward to."
Ian’s treatment and relationship with the team at The London Prosthetic Centre continue, and throughout his life he will always need adjustments to his prosthesis. Already, the difference to Ian’s quality of life is remarkable to the point that he is in the midst of plans to marry his long term partner Lesley and they will embark on new travel adventures together without the need for only wheelchair friendly places.
