Thembi Maphanga

 

Thembi Maphanga was born with a left shortened Femur and a foot in Equines (pointing down). This "born amputation" requires a custom-manufactured prosthetic leg to accommodate her foot and to manufacture a system where her leg/amputation can slide in and out of a socket. We had to take a plaster cast off her leg and manufacture her a custom socket to wear and walk in. The placement of her prosthetic foot is so important to provide her with balance.

Thembi is such a friendly and positive person to work with. I hope you have lovely walking hours on your new leg!

Thank you, Thembi!
