Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust and RSLSteeper Team Up to Help Paralympian Walk His Sister Down the Aisle
Date:7/2/2010

re, with each limb taking just 25 minutes to be carved. By 5.45pm, the fitting process began, and by 6.30, Anthony was taking his first steps on the new limbs. The whole process was finished by 8pm.

Anthony was overwhelmed and could not believe the difference in the service provided and how this was not going to cost him anything, as the limb build was processed under the NHS:

“I am so grateful to the whole team, they went above their call of duty. I had given up hope before I got the phone call on Friday morning. I had assumed I would have to use a wheelchair I have borrowed instead of walking my sister down the aisle on her special day."

Steve Carter, Paul Leishman, Roy Wood and Nigel Blower worked so hard to make the legs for me. They stayed for an extra five hours on Friday night to make sure I was fitted with a new pair of legs.”
RSLSteeper Branch Manager Steven Carter said:

“What a great effort by the team, and what a great gentleman to do it for, this is what the job is all about; making dreams happen.

“We are probably the only company in the UK who were able to provide a replacement pair of limb for Anthony in such a short time frame. This would not be possible with conventional manufacturing techniques, but thanks to the leading edge CADCAM system that RSLSteeper has invested in and a great effort from everyone involved, we made it happen.”

Anthony is a former wheelchair ice hockey athlete, who competed in the 1998 Winter Paralympics in Japan and is hoping to take part in the wheelchair races at the London 2012 Games.

RSLSteeper is one of the UK’s leading providers of prosthetic, orthotic and assistive technology care. Working independently, in partnership with the NHS and other care agencies, the company provides both clinical services and products.
