Picking things up off the floor demands a different balancing strategy. Set a small goal not only for a day but for a week so that you give yourself a chance to reach or maybe over-reach your limits. The underhose supplied with your prosthesis by the Artificial Limb Centre are long-wearing and quite a natural colour under pantyhose, the colour of which can be adjusted to reflect a tan. In early days, you might feel safe only walking around the house but checking the mailbox extends your limit before tackling the street or stepping down and up a kerb. When you have to climb stairs and get into buses etc.

When you are cycling, put your artificial foot on the pedal first and get off the bike with your sound foot. Put one sock on your artificial foot and leave it there all the time. When you buy socks, buy two or three identical pairs.
