Isabel lives in Guatemala and lost his arm in a work accident 12 years ago. Since the accident, he’s been using the traditional split hook device, which is functional and strong but quite heavy, and Isabel found it a bit unsightly.
Having a prosthetic was vital to Isabel as he needed to continue working and providing for his family. When he first encountered VHP, he was astounded at the functionality and appearance of their prosthetics and how lightweight and versatile they were.
Isabel was one of the first people to work with the VHP in Guatemala, and has had the opportunity to try out all the different devices. He was the first to be fitted with the Voluntary Open device, and wears it proudly when out and about.
