"I have been to many prosthetists since losing my leg. I am now in the most comfortable socket I have ever worn. I am able to wear my prosthesis for 16 hours a day without discomfort. When I am not working, I enjoy biking, hiking and canoeing." – Ron Hepler, Williamson

"I have an above knee amputation. I'm 89 years old and I use my prosthesis all day, every day. If I'm not a walking advertisement, there's no such thing! I highly recommend these folks to anybody." – Sidney Greenberg, Cazenovia, NY
