COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – A local doctor’s office is taking advantage of some new medical technology.

Columbus resident Sandra Boone is the first person in the state to get a new prosthetic knee.

Workers at Complete Prosthetics and Orthotics say it is the only motor powered prosthetic knee on the market right now.

They say it’s also the only prosthetic knee that allows patients to go up stairs step over step.

Boone says she looks forward to doing more with this new technology.

“Just walking. Walking, getting out, doing things that I haven’t been able to do other than with a wheelchair.”

Only 80 people in the entire country have this motor-powered prosthetic knee.
