Maela is one of our spunkiest patients in a little package. She is 6 years old and started with us almost 3 years ago. She is a right hemipelvectomy patient, meaning that the right leg and part of her pelvis is missing. Her current leg is made with a hip, knee, and running foot fit to her custom butterfly socket with flexible in-lay for cushion. Maela loves to play soccer and has been practicing with her prosthesis to kick the ball and run. She has also learned how to ride her scooter with her prosthesis and can now outrace her brothers. We are so excited to see her grow and improve on her leg every visit. From hopping and using crutches two years ago to walking and running by herself today, Maela is absolutely amazing and we cannot wait to see what happens next!
