I am a relatively new amputee, having had my left leg amputated AKA due to a motorcycle accident in April, 2008. Been walking with the Rheo since late July of 2008..for almost 7 months. I have a great prosthetist whom has been able to create a well fitting socket for me, after my first prosthetist messed it up. Anyways, I have better insurance now and would like to obtain another prosthetic but am uncertain if I should go with the C-Leg or stay with the Rheo. It seems like the biggest Pros to the C-Leg are lighter weight legs, which inevitably mean less stress on the wearer.
How do those whom have the C-leg like it? Have they had the Rheo before? If so, what do you prefer?
Please respond at your leisure.
