Leg Braceby Editor on 02/26/20
Going through some old stuff and I came across one of my leg braces from years ago...
After a motorcycle accident with a tow truck, I was confined to a wheelchair for a couple of years while the doctors performed surgery after surgery to rebuild my legs. My left leg had the most damage, three compound fractures that left a tennis ball size hole in my femur and a golfball size hole in my tibia. Bone graphs were needed to fill the holes using bone that was harvested from my iliac crests but there still wasn't enough, so additional materials called osteoset beads were mixed in to fill the defects. Once the doctors were confident in the strength of the bond I was fitted with this brace at G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Centre to begin the long road to walk again.
