Headshots for my prosthetists office. Revamping the website and plus a couple of new practioners seemed like a good excuse to get new pictures of everyone.

Dolled up for motion capture at the VA Center for Limb Loss and Mobility today.

Lots of walking/running/squats plus a metabolic treadmill test today. Strength assessment tomorrow. The goal of the research is too complicated to even try and explain in a post here.

@mikaela.jenkins.6459 was more than happy to try out her new leg on the treadmill. #allproallstar

Fantastic interview and story, Adrianne Haslet & WGBH.

Really excited for you and what we know will be a monumental milestone. Eager to see you and your hard work in the #Allpro by Fillauer come September. Safe training & keep crushing it! http://ow.ly/a1fn50ziTyQ #allproallstar #limbloss [Excerpts below, read the full story at https://www.wgbh.org/all-access-journey-to-boston-marathon]
Haslet was sitting on the tarmac at McCarren International Airport in Las Vegas, about to fly back to Boston from a speaking engagement, when she first saw it: a prosthetic leg, with a foot attached to the bottom of its curve. It was worn by a Cirque du Soleil performer, also in Las Vegas, in a video sent by one of Hasletโ€™s Instagram followers. In the video clip, the performer sprints onto the stage and right into a powerful handspring. โ€œHis run was level, perfect,โ€ Haslet said. โ€œI was moved. I wanted to get off the plane and see his show.โ€ When she reached out to the performer to inquire about the type of leg he was using, he responded immediately: it was called an AllPro, made by prosthetic manufacturer Fillauer. Haslet called her โ€œleg guyโ€ to request a trial, and two days later gave it a run.

So, she was eager to try the new style that she saw in the Cirque du Soleil video, which features a similar sleeve attachment but also comes with a foot on the bottom. She put it on, and right away ran six laps around the block outside her prosthetistโ€™s office. โ€œI ran the way you do when youโ€™re a kid. You just run. Youโ€™re not thinking about going faster; itโ€™s just what your body does.โ€ ADRIANNE HASLET, ATHLETE AND ADVOCATE

$15,075. That's the cost of my new robot leg: Foot, socket, vacuum suspension, 2 liners, 2 sealing sleeves.

I needed a new socket and it's been almost 3 years since I got a new foot so we decided it would be a good time get that as well. A complete system like this should last 3-5 years. Individual components will need to be replaced during that time: sealing sleeves and liners can get pretty worn out in a year; the socket will need to be replaced as limb shape and volume changes (10-15 lbs weight change can make it unwearable); feet last the longest, warranties are 2-3 years but eventually the carbon fiber weakens and they break. If I was transfemoral the cost could easily be over $50K depending on the knee. Disability's expensive.

Yesterdayโ€™s workout was tough... In crew you need form, control, speed and endurance. My workout yesterday was about form and control and I have been really feeling my form lately which is great (take the win)! Now my stroke control on the other hand has been the challenging part... maintaining higher strokes per minute is much easier for me than lower strokes per minute especially when I have to slow down to 18, 22 and 24... they have become my source of frustration a nemesis of sorts if you will but I will continue to show up and work on my control, feeling the power of each stroke until I can maintain that stroke speed blindfolded knowing the movement of my body feeling the pure fluidity and tension of each speed, whether itโ€™s 18, 22, 24, etc... and even though I have so much work ahead of me, the goal of winning that first race on my road to the 2024 Paralympics will be incredible and worth every moment of sweat and frustration! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ… #para-athlete #thescullinglife #thescullinglifeforme #ergitup #ergistheword #formcontrolspeedendurance #allpro #allproallstar #obsidian #obsidianobsessed #obsessedwithmyobsidian #fillauer #ilovefillauerfeet #formfollowsfunction #adaptiveathlete #adapttheworld #paralympics2024 #paris2024 @fillauer @fillauerallproallstars @amputeecoalition @juststrong

That time again. Lost over 2cm in circumference and the old socket's getting a bit hard to walk around in.

Switching from the OWW One/LimbLogic to the Ottobock DVS to (hopefully) allow enough room for a short pylon and additional pyramaid connector to give us the ability to fine tune my alignment. #amputeelife #allproallstar #rushrebel #ottobock
