Meet Len Elliot, the first ever above knee amputee to pass the QLD Police Force Functional Capacity Test

Len Elliot is a Queensland Police Officer that was hit by a motorcycle during an RBT on the 14th April 2014 on the Sunshine Coast. The motorcycle was travelling at 180 km/h and the impact resulted in Len becoming an above knee amputee.

Such a life changing event would have made many people think of a career change. However, Len is not like most people.

The original prosthetic sock designed to be worn under a suspension liner for skin protection.  X-Static silver inhibits odor on the fabric.

 

The GlideWear® Prosthetic Liner Patch is indicated for amputees who experience irritation and areas of shear-related skin breakdown at various locations of the skin-liner interface, including the patella, popliteal, distal anterior tibia, and fibular head.

Simply position the GlideWear Prosthetic Liner Patch between the prosthetic liner and skin each day for immediate relief and continuous protection from skin trauma.

Trautman Expansion Arbors are designed to prevent the sanding cone from flying away. 

As the expansion arbor spins, it expands and applies pressure to the inside of the sanding sleeve, holding the sleeve on the arbor.  This provides you with a smoother grinding surface for straighter lines and higher quality finish.
