BKA 7 prosthetic?


My son is a veteran and has below knee amputation. It is not service connected. How often will the VA approve a new prosthetic? He has a lot of trouble with leg not fitting right.


Jim's Reply:

There is no particular schedule for replacing prosthetics. Each prosthetics department is responsible for timely replacing a prosthetic on a 'need-to' basis when the device is either worn beyond its useful life or as in your son's case, there may be an improper fit. If your son is receiving his prosthetic services from VA he needs to work with the team caring for him to determine any future needs. Good luck!
