Testimonial for Hocoma's C-Mill
“My lower left leg was amputated after a traffic collision in October 2015. My leg was badly crushed, and my thighbone was rammed through my pelvis by the crash. I spent a total of 22 hours on the surgeon’s table, six months of regular out-patient visits at Rookwood Hospital in Cardiff’s Artificial Limb and Appliance Centre, and a hip replacement in November 2016. After I relearned how to walk with my prosthetic leg, I continued my physiotherapy under the expert care of staff at The Morrello Clinic in Newport where I started using Hocoma’s C-Mill.”
“The C-Mill is an amazing piece of equipment which has changed my life. I use it every week as part of my rehabilitation therapy, mostly walking on the treadmill to improve my gait and speed but also using applications such as targeted stepping stones, slalom and tandem walking, obstacle avoidance and using visual cues to speed up and slow down. The treadmill’s step adaptation to my own gait is brilliant, as the equipment knows exactly where I will naturally step. It projects obstacles on the treadmill right where I am about to place my foot so I have to change my step suddenly.”

“When I first started using the treadmill, my speed was around 1.8 km/hr but today I can get up to 7 km/hr. The gait analysis reports help me see how much progress I’ve made each session. The C-Mill has really made a difference, as it’s made me more confident and pushes me to make improvements in a safe environment.”
