I am in the process of getting the c-leg. One feature I was thinking about adding is the tortion. Just wondering if any of you have it and what your thoughts and recommendations would be around that. My understanding is that it is a piece added in the ankle area that allows you to rotate some with your foot planted on the ground. Seems like it would be great for golf, hiking, and many activities. But like everything I know there must be both pros and cons. My prosthetist said one negative would be the extra weight as I am a pretty small person. So I'd love to hear from anyone who is using or has used this option. Thanks, Tammy
I will be eligible for medicare in January and it is my understanding that they will pay for 80% of the cost of the c-leg. My question is: Does anyone know if they will pay for/allow both a c-leg and an electric scooter? As we all know it takes a long time to get up the endurance and ability on a prostheisis, and of course there will always be times, for one reason or another, when we are unable to wear the prosthesis. Thanks for any input.
