The Baltimore Sun

A giant Step for Tony, with the help of a good therapist and a bionic knee

Commentary by Dan Rodricks 

The following spring, Gerst received his first above-knee prosthesis and started working with Jamin, an amputee specialist, in a room at Real Life Prosthetics in Abingdon.

With regular therapy, he made progress and was ready to go bionic by fall. The prosthetists at Real Life outfitted him with a Power Knee just before Christmas. They also gave him a microprocessor-controlled ankle.

The manufacturer of both devices is Ossur, a longtime prosthetics developer based in Iceland. Its website says the Power Knee “helps fill the absence of muscle power.” Gerst finds it particularly helpful when he needs to rise from a chair. He works with Jamin on that during therapy sessions.

Where Art and Science Meet

by Tony Roberts 

Joanne Presbury of Bel Air is a three-year amputee.  After Pressbury, 62, lost her leg to diabetes, her physical therapist referred her to Real LIfe Prosthetics for a replacement, she said.  Presbury lost all but one of her toes on her right foot, and lost her left leg up to her knee.  She not only found a place that got her to walk like she never lost a leg, but a company that cared about what she wants, she said.
