Kevin D.

Unilateral Hip Disarticulation

In 1974, Kevin was diagnosed with bone cancer in his leg.  He was 5-years old at the time of his amputation surgery, which was the standard treatment at that time.  From that point on, he grew up wearing a prosthesis.

 

"With very few exceptions, there is nothing you will be prevented from doing.  You may not do it the same as everyone else does, but if you want to do something, you'll find a way to do it."

CUSTOM LAMINATION
 

Real Life Prosthetics creates and designs custom lamination for orthotic and prosthetic devices when something more personable is wanted instead of the traditional colors.

A custom lamination may be chosen in part to reflect an individual's personality on their prosthetic or orthotic device.  Sometimes the decision to wear it depends on how the device looks in the end.  We frequently observe this in kids, who may have everything from superheroes to their favorite animation characters on their finished prosthetic or orthotic devices.
