“With a positive attitude, you can achieve anything.”
The above words are used to describe Mrs. Van Zyl, a bilateral amputee as a result of diabetes. She has been one of our patients for the last 18 years. We tried to introduce her to silicone liners; however, she decided to continue using a PTS socket with PE – lite liners as she had worn these all her life. We manufactured her below knee PTS sockets with elation feet. These feet allow her to wear different heel heights on her shoes, which is obviously a great advantage for her as a woman. She and her husband enjoy dancing and she is an active walker that lives her life to the fullest.
