Ryanne, a congenital bilateral AK amputee, has been wearing TaiLor Made prosthetic feet for about two years. She says they have been a real gamechanger for her. “I am able to walk and stop more smoothly,” Ryanne explains, “especially outside on different terrians.”
In the two years since Kim received her first TaiLor Made prosthetic foot, she has increased her activity level and shed 12 pounds of weight. She is looking forward to going hiking with her family this summer. “It’s really been life changing as I’m now able to take part in activities with my kids, not just watch from the sidelines,” explains Kim. “It adjusts so easily from flat to uneven surfaces, and allows me to stay steady and under control no matter what the terrain.”
Brett got in a good workout while testing a his socket. The TaiLor Made Prosthetics foot allows him to push into the ground with the same force and receive same (or better) kickback as he gets on his other foot. Brett has recenty moved to Colorado from his life-long home in California in order to train for the paralympics. He has a great testimony; check it out in his recent book, “Standing My Own Ground – Getting Up When it Seems Impossible,” available on Amazon.

Ryanne was able to walk down stairs foot over foot for the first time EVER! “The TaiLor Made feet made it easy for me to stay stable on the steps,” Ryanne, who’s been missing her legs since birth, explained. “I thought I needed microprocessors to do that (she wears Össur Total Knees); it’s so exciting!”
Denise loved the comfort and energy of the TaiLor Made foot from the moment she first walked on it. “It feels like I have an ankle!” she exclaimed. Denise’s daughter, Nicole, noticed right away that she had more spring in her step. “Hey, mom,” she said, “let’s run!” It was fun watching this mother/daughter moment as Nicole *coaxed* her mom into attempting to jog for the first time since losing her leg.
