    Double amputee using two C-legs


    I am getting fitted with C-leg technology and am wondering, are there any double amputees on this board that are using the C-leg?

    I have been using a more standard leg for over 40 years and am now trying to transition to the C-leg. I have been on them only twice so far for a total of approx. 2 hours.

    I am finding they are so different from what I am used to and am thinking about such things as sitting in a chair and then standing up, getting in and out of my car, getting used to using my Canadian crutches allowing the legs to work as designed.

    There are so many things that I think I will have to re-learn and am kind of nervous about learning to use this new technology.

    Anyway, I would really appreciate hearing from those who have transitioned to this technology from the more traditional leg and have gone through the learning curve that I am now beginning.

    How difficult was it for you to adapt?
