My New Prosthetic Leg: Jess Quinn

My New Prosthetic Leg: Jess Quinn
Jess Quinn was one of the first people in New Zealand to have rotationplasty surgery - it’s an operation where a large part of her leg is removed, and the foot is rotated 180 degrees and placed where the knee usually is. It means a prosthetic leg can be more functional, as the ‘backwards foot’ acts as a hinge - similar to the way a knee would bend. Now Jess is receiving a new prosthetic - one more lifelike than she’s ever had before.
