Cameron Pocock lost his left leg in a motor vehicle accident in 2015. This devastating injury would stop many people from achieving their life goals, but not Cameron.
Just 12 months on from his life-changing accident, Cameron is back at work, driving his beloved manual car and living life to the fullest, thanks to his new bionic prosthesis and his positive outlook.
Following his accident, Cameron went through extensive rehabilitation and LSA ensured he received the very best treatment and care possible.
We have helped Cameron with making modifications to his house, including the bathroom and laundry area, building a new ramp and cementing his garage.
But the big changes to Cameron’s life came when his new Genium X3 bionic prosthesis was fitted.
The Genium X3 is water resistant, enables walking backwards, climbing steps, and has a running mode developed especially for sports.
Cameron says his new prosthesis has helped him to regain his life.
“…I am able to do most things now, which I could do before the accident. The new prosthesis has enabled me to live.”
“I surprised myself and others when I returned to work as a forklift operator – it was a major achievement for me. It helped to prove I had the physical capabilities to do a task that I had never done before.”
“Regaining an unrestricted driver’s licence was also a huge goal. I love motor cars and motor sports, and I am in the process of restoring a 1971 Datsun 1600.”
A significant goal for Cameron was to return to work in the glass industry, for which he has trade qualifications. Cameron achieved that goal in May this year. He aspires to be upskilled in his role and to continue the restoration of his Datsun.
