Steeper Prosthetist Tim started his day watching a patient walk for the first time on a new prosthesis.
“I see turning points in my patients every day, for me it’s the small wins of watching someone achieve a goal they’ve set themselves that is really rewarding. Not everyone can be a Paralympian, for most patients it’s getting back to enjoying a hobby or going back to work that are their big wins and it’s our job to help them”
“As a prosthetist, I always liken myself to a car salesman who can’t drive! I have to listen to the patient about what they think and feel about their prostheses; and I have to learn about the best techniques, latest technologies and best practice to ensure I give the patient, the best possible solution for their particular needs.”
