Success Story

Mr Frambs

Other

Mr Frambs, another of our success stories, is an 84 year old man who lost his left arm above the elbow due to malignant cancer. Amputation above the elbow causes a more complicated situation as it is very difficult to control and manage an above elbow prosthesis. After three consultations and many long discussions about all the limitations of an above elbow prosthesis, especially for an elderly patient, we agreed to manufacture a cosmetic above elbow prosthesis for him. It consists of modular lightweight aluminium componentry and a well fitted and lined socket. Mr Frambs survived serious surgery and to this day he wears his prosthetic arm with pride. He taught us that anything is possible at any age! Well done!!
