Firefighter puts new prosthetic technology to use

Lawrence firefighter Earl Barnes is one of the first in the Kansas City region to use a prosthetic technology for amputees called the V-Hold. It uses advanced sensors and vacuum suction technology to provide improved fit, comfort and control.

I assume your old unit was a harmony? I have had a lot of trouble with mine as well and just got a newer one. My main problem now is with holes in the sleeves and losing suction that way. Anyway would love to hear how you like this one and how it holds up. I would post my email here but a little scared of getting spammed.
