4R57 photo

Joan K. Cestaro, CP

Trying to locate a photo of the 4R57 OttoBock rotation unit “in action”
pictured on a prosthesis. I’ve seen great photos during Powerpoints, but
can’t find any online or at Bock. I recall a male amputee sitting on a chair
with the shin & foot portion rotated up, resting on the sound side, donning
a shoe on his prosthetic foot. I’ve also seen a photo showing a female
sitting on the floor with her legs crisscrossed (doing yoga maybe or as a
teacher or Mom sitting with kids). I need a photo that assists a layperson
with understanding how this unit functions on a prosthesis. Because driving
requirements seem to be the most appropriate medical justification for the
part (and the only one I’ve used it for), a photo showing rotation away from
a vehicle’s pedals would be ideal. I’ve contacted OttoBock already. Hoping
they come through, but might get better results here.
