"I love being in nature and spending time with my family. Despite my amputation, I am still active as a swimmer. When I grow up, I want to be a ship's captain."
My name is Jack Isaack and I’m a 17 year old, active and resilient teenager. I was amputated below the knee at the tender age of 2 as a result of a road accident. I have used various assistive devices over the years but I have never really been satisfied. My current fitting done at Ottobock Kenya in Nairobi has given me newfound confidence and enables me to go about my daily chores with lots of enthusiasm and independence.
