For those of you who follow Real Housewives of Orange County, I see from her Instagram, kindly pointed out by a customer, that Tamra Judge has discovered the joys of the iWALK 2.0. If you are a social and fashion icon with a broken foot or ankle, you now know what to do!
The new America’s Cup catamarans sail four times faster than the wind by literally flying over the water. When French skipper Franck Cammas was knocked overboard during training, he almost lost his lower leg. He needed to get back into training in time to compete for the cup, so naturally he wanted the best, most technologically advanced crutch in the world. That’s why he chose the iWALK2.0, which we the fellow sailors at Peglegs UK sent to his training base in France. In June, France successfully competed in the America’s Cup Challenger series in their quest for the cup.
We are coming across a number of Achilles rupture patients who are being offered a trial which involves being in an air boot from the beginning so they do not actually need to be non weight-bearing and wish to return their iWALK 2.0. This costs us a considerable amount, so please check before you buy!
You definitely can’t drive a car with a manual gearbox and foot clutch using an iWALK but what this video shows is how easy it is to remove the iWALK 2.0 and get into the driving seat of a large American car with automatic transmission. Putting it back on is the reverse of this operation and takes a similar time.
Phil Tunstall, a very nice man from Legs4Africa has just taken away our old rental fleet of the original iWALKFree, for use in The Gambia. Looking forward to seeing some pictures of the people they are helping out there.
For any amputees with unwanted prosthetic devices, they will find a worthwhile home for them.
