CLIENT REFERENCES - FEEDBACK FROM OUR CIENTS
Just a note of thanks for all your help relating to the supply and manufacture of my prosthetic legs. As you well know, I am a new amputee and was very stressed and worried about the prospect of facing the world and dealing with life without my right foot. My love of the outdoors in particular was what made life worth living for me.
After my amputation I felt certain that life could never be as good as it was before. Never in my wildest dreams did I realise how wrong I was. The leg that you recommended and fitted me has me running around, managing my busy restaurant and I am even back in the water surfing. Tackling the rocks when I go fishing is no more difficult than before. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!
In addition I want to express gratitude for your willingness to always be available at short notice when emergency maintenance and minor adjustments are required. Your insight into my plight as an amputee, expert advice and terrific service has helped me work through my ordeal and life is back to normal. Thanks again.
I would like to thank-you for my very good above-knee prosthesis. Having had a four-way heart by-pass in mid-2013, I needed to get a new and light artificial leg that worked well and was comfortable. I have pursued this end for three years now, and only experienced success after meeting you.
After five attempts and countless falls, I have finally got the leg I need. I appealed to you for help and you recommended a new socket. In making the socket, you took great care to ensure a precise fit and comfort every step of the way. Your attention to detail was something I have not experienced before.
I finally have a socket that fits handsomely, is perfectly aligned and gives me an excellent walking stance. The socket is lightweight and smooth and I experience no chafing because of the exact fit. My walking has never been better and on a good day no one can even see that I have an artificial leg.
Roland, you are a star! I will always recommend you to anyone needing prosthesis, and I believe that all your clients with needs will receive the same kind of service and comfort that I have. Thank you very much.
