After following Open Bionics for around 5 years and suffering increasing pain while using my old prosthetic arm I finally decided to take the plunge and contact them to see if I would be a suitable candidate for the Hero Arm.
That was the best decision I’ve ever made!
The whole journey from the initial phone call and crowdfunding help, through to the fitting appointments and opportunities to be involved with the hero arm community has been wonderful. At the time of writing it’s 9 months since I collected my hero arm and, while it instantly became a part of me (and the most comfortable prosthetic limb I’ve worn in over 40 years), I now feel that I’m a part of the Open Bionics family. These talented and compassionate people really listen to their clients and move mountains to ensure your hero arm is as in-tune with you and your personality as it can possibly be.
Oh, and that pain I used to have? It’s gone.
