Caroline is a COVID-19 survivor. Caroline also suffered from viral sepsis as a result of catching the virus, requiring her to undergo a quadruple amputation.
Caroline spoke about getting her Hero Arm fitting at Open Bionics “My experience has been really amazing. The first time I picked up a ball with my Hero Arm and I held it and dropped it, it felt like having a superpower.”
“Having the technical and clinical expertise as part of the prosthesis fitting process was really incredible as I was able to see how the Hero Arm could be customised to meet my personal needs.”
