So many things! Being part of somebody’s journey to mobility, whether that’s the basics, like being able to get around the house, or a much bigger goal, like aiming to compete in the Paralympic Games. I get to make things every day and my job satisfaction comes from creating something that I can see and touch.
I create two different types of limb sockets. One is a diagnostic socket, which is used to assess the fit of the prosthetic limb. It’s not the final one and can still be adjusted. This involves taking a cast and then heating it up in an oven and then shaping it once it comes out.
