Emily Harrison

Prosthetist

Training/ Qualifications:  BSC (hons) Prosthetics & Orthotics

Years in the industry: 13 1/2 years working as a Prosthetist. 12 years spent working at the Portsmouth Enablement Centre in England. I was able to work with a significant number of war veterans and Paralympians during the London 2012 Paralympics.  

Years at oapl (FOS): I have worked for FOS for 1 1/2 years and started my employment exactly 12 years to the day of starting my prior job at Portsmouth (freaky!)

Why I do what I do:  I'm a Prosthetist because I like that I have the ability to help rebuild people. When amputation is the last resort for a surgeon, it is my beginning to help amputees to become mobile and independent again so that they hopefully go on to achieve whatever they want to in life.
