Re: 9yo Bil TF Patient: RESPONSES

Posted By: Dan Smoker, LPO on February 20, 2012

We are currently working with a 9 yo young man, who presents with bilateral TF amputations. He is very active and wears Reflex-Rotate feet for everyday use.
However, he prefers stubbie-style feet for sports, like football. Are there any high activity stubbie-style feet commercially available?

Thank you,

RESPONSES:

The smallest size Wave feet from Fillauer without footshells and glued tread
work well.

The Fillauer Wave feet were the overwhelming response, with or without footshells.

Thank you for the responses,
