Some amazing news from the world of prosthetics! Blatchford has just launched the water resistant Orion3 microprocessor knee.

This incredible innovation by Blatchford will revolutionise the lives of many amputees.

Some quotes from users about the new water-resistant Orion3 Microprocessor Knee:

Orion3 means freedom. The freedom to do what I want to do, when I want to do it, without limitation.

Water has always been an issue, it’s something you would avoid. Now you don’t have to.

It takes the thinking out of walking.
It is always rewarding to be made aware of and be able to share these positive and often life-changing innovations in prosthetics. I imagine it must be a wonderfully exciting field to work in at the moment. As I’ve observed before when publishing these uplifting stories, it seems difficult to believe that not that many years ago in the scheme of things, Sir Douglas was wearing what he fondly called his “tin legs”. Not exactly flexible and definitely not light! How he would have loved to be able to try out some of these fantastic new prosthetics…
