In 2012, Tallulah Smith was travelling to Peru on her gap year, when disaster struck: a bus travelling at high speed knocked her over. With vague and surreal memories, she woke up in hospital to discover her leg had been amputated below the knee in order to save her life.
When Tallulah visited LPC, Abdo immediately recognised the need to create a custom socket and foot that enables Tallulah to be as active on the go without the need to change her leg every time she shifts into a new activity.
“Abdo gave me exactly what I wanted. It’s my every day leg and is the most comfortable leg I have ever had. I can just start running when I want to and it feels fantastic to run because for so many years I couldn’t."
