Truly art work. I then attach the knee and foot to what you see. Patient is a 39 year old truck driver, with long hair and all. He looks like Joe Dirt, and this fits him perfect. He's a real nice guy that was dealt a bad hand and is making the most of his life. So hence the extra effort.
The guy has a great friend, way to go Brace!
