Unity Sleeveless Vacuum - Darrel’s Story

Meet Darrel, a 44 year old amputee, IT Professional, Taekwondo Instructor and family man. He has been an amputee for 39 years after losing his lower right leg in a machinery accident when he was just 5 years old. Darrel works at an energy utility in Newcastle and leads an active life with his family, playing sport, and developing new challenges for himself.

Growing up in a small farming community surrounded by great family support, Darrel was just like any other boy, constantly on the go, with hobbies such as motor bike riding, BMX, tennis, hockey, hiking and anything that involved an adventure.

Darrel can now train for hours, be on his feet all day at work, chase his kids around the park or go for a 5km jog with his wife and be confident that the system will keep up with him.

“The Unity system with a Seal-In® V liner and paired to the Re-Flex Shock™ I am unstoppable! It gives me confidence, performance and a comfort I never had before.”

Darrel on being introduced to the Unity® Vacuum System in 2014.

Unity Sleeveless Vacuum - Ann Marie's Story

Ann Marie Rivera has been using Unity in conjunction with her Re-Flex Rotate foot for some time now. An active young woman, she has not one, but two jobs -- one in paediatric intensive care and the other as a school nurse.

"Unity has made me feel completely secure, even when I'm walking barefoot -- it's like my prosthesis is part of my leg. Before, I had to use a sleeve and socks, and that limited my range of motion. Now I can honestly say that when I wake up in the morning, I put on my leg and just wear it all day, it's that simple."
