Thanks Merel Rumping appreciate the support and look forward to staying in touch! Hope we can find ways to collaborate. Best regards,
Rob

Thank you Umuraza Mathilde . Do you work with lower-limb amputees in Rwanda? We would love to be connected with people currently using a prosthetic knee joint for their feedback and insight. You can please reach me at remotion@d-rev.org if willing to talk via email. Kind regards

Thanks Lesa R. Walker MD, MPH ! We have key partners in some regions, particularly Central America (ROMP is one), and Southeast Asia (Exceed is another), and East Africa (through our other, non-prosthetic medical devices). Great idea to share with the Nairobi and Joberg chapters - our team just returned from South Africa where we see an excellent market for a high-quality prosthetic knee geared for low-income users, and I visited prosthetic facilities in Nairobi in 2014 (nearby Tanzania has a center of excellence as well).
