Ben: Orion3 Knee

Overcoming Adversity with Orion3's Water-Resistant Technology

Fifteen years ago, Ben's life dramatically turned after a motorbike accident amputated his left leg above the knee. Additionally, he suffered from a dislocated right knee, which caused nerve damage and a challenging medical condition called drop foot. Despite these setbacks, Ben has always been an avid outdoor enthusiast, passionate about sports and spontaneous adventures. However, with his previous microprocessor knee, he couldn’t enjoy the activities he loved. That was until he came across the game-changing Orion3 - a water-resistant MPK that transformed his world.

From Kayaking to Mountain Biking: A New Lease on Outdoor Life

Engaging in any outdoor activity may be daunting for many amputees. Not only because of the terrain but also the weather's impact on daily life. With a sense of genuine anxiety as they could potentially damage their prosthetic when out in the rain, puddles, or unexpected river crossings. However, Ben discovered a solution in Orion3's water-resistant design, enabling him to pursue his passions without inhibitions.

Whether he is kayaking or mountain biking, Ben trusts Orion3 completely. He says...

"I no longer worry about puddles, a little rain, or the occasional river crossing. Life is much easier now, and I don't have to overthink things. I can live my life without any concerns."
