He wears Ottobock Genium knee with simple foot (no electronics), suction socket with silicone liner. He is a father of two living in 2 storey accommodation. Danny works part-time and drives. He has no care or assistance. He does not have a wheelchair. His main problem is his sound knee (result of the accident).

-----------------

You should determine how this fits into your individual CPD plan; PIBA will provide a suggested framework closer to the time.

Learning Objectives: for members to gain a better understanding of how to litigate amputation claims, how patients are assessed for prosthetic provision and the sorts of technology available, from both a QC speaker and a highly experienced Consultant Prosthetist. There may also be an opportunity to hear briefly from one or more amputees about their experience of using prosthetic limbs.
