Live outdoor life almost as before
For outdoor enthusiast Jørgen, it was a great desire to be able to continue using nature - even after he became a prosthetic user. Thanks to a specially adapted prosthesis, he can now race both up and down the mountain sides on randonee skis.
When thousands of people are injured in war - and have to amputate body parts - prostheses must be produced at a rapid pace. Three orthopedic engineers from Ukraine recently visited OCH Orthopedics' clinic in Oslo to receive training in the production of prostheses using the Direct Socket method.
As an orthopedic engineer, I have a profession I can do anywhere in the world, says Sondre Rike, who recently returned to Norway and AND Orthopedics after a 14-month stay in Sydney. Thanks to the lack of orthopedic engineers in Australia, he got the chance to live there and marry his dream woman.
On 1 July 2013, Leif Bråten was involved in a motorcycle accident. On July 16, his right leg was amputated under his calf, and on August 12 he was back at work in the recording studio he runs – After the accident, I quickly realized that the prosthesis had to become my new best friend. Now I feel better than ever," says Leif Bråten (53).
