“After becoming a bilateral amputee later in life, I was more than ready to take on this new lifestyle with a can-do attitude. After having difficulties with finding the right fit, I decided that Barber Prosthetics was the place to be to take my first steps toward accomplishing my goals. I found Barber to be innovative, creative and ahead of the times, exactly what I needed. 

Would I be able to run? Will it hurt for me to walk? Would I ever get to play volleyball again? I am an active person, and these answers were important to me. Barber Prosthetics helped me get back to the activities I love. Getting back into volleyball, which I’ve played since my mid-twenties, was very important. 

During my first few fittings I faced several challenges, especially with discomfort and alignment. After several hours of work, dedication, and the use of new technologies, Barber Prosthetics was able to finally give a solution to my struggles with alignment. 

I recently competed on the Canadian sitting volleyball team, winning bronze at the 2015 Parapan Am Games, earning a spot in the 2016 Paralympics in Rio! Can’t wait for what’s next.”
