Meet Julie: World Traveller, Bikini Socket Wearer. I think you’ll like her story.

Julie’s left leg was amputated at the hip disarticulation level in 2014.  She was first fit with a traditional bucket style socket which limited her ability to walk comfortably.  In 2015 she was fit with the Bikini Socket, and since then she has traveled to more than 12 countries around the world – from Malaysia to Santiago.  Julie loves how comfortable the Bikini Socket is to wear – she even recently wore it on her 25 hour flight to Singapore, comfortably.  According to Julie, the Bikini Socket “is not even in the same hemisphere” as a traditional bucket style hip socket.
Way to go Julie!
