The story of Comfort Prosthetics begins with Bob Maniere, a below knee amputee since the age of 15. Bob's first experiences with prosthetics were hardly satisfactory; his first prosthetic was too painful to wear, and his prosthetist had no sympathy, instead of trying to find a better way, he simply told Bob that he would have to live with the pain.
