Cameron Pocock lost his left leg in a motor vehicle accident in 2015.
Following his accident, Cameron went through extensive rehabilitation and, through the scheme, the LSA ensured he received the very best treatment and care with a team including a physiotherapist, orthotist, prosthetist, vocational psychologist and occupational therapists.
Modifications were made to Cameron’s house, including the bathroom and laundry area, building a new ramp and cementing his garage.
The biggest changes to Cameron’s life came when his new Genium X3 bionic prosthesis was fitted.
The Genium X3 is water resistant, enables walking backwards, climbing steps, and has a running mode developed especially for sports.
Cameron says “his new prosthesis has enabled him to live.”
“I can now climb on machinery, climb onto the tray of my ute and climb up ladders easily. In short, I am able to do most things now, which I could do before the accident. The new prosthesis has enabled me to live.”
A significant goal for Cameron was to return to work in the glass industry, for which he has trade qualifications. Cameron has now achieved that goal and from here plans to continue restoration of his beloved 1971 Datsun 1600.
