My wonderful girlfriend surprised me with a wonderful trip to Amsterdam for my 30th birthday, She never told me where we were going until we boarded the plane.

During this weekend we were greeted bye two other friends who surprised me as well, and I was finally able to test the Hydra Coupler for traveling. Amsterdam was a very beautiful destination to see, we took a canal boat as well as a guided 20180504 111129trip at Heiniken brewery. During the 2 nights we spent in Amsterdam I managed to walk over 45000 steps with the coupler allowing me to make it past the 200k mark. In retrospect it might have been foolish to just take one leg for the whole travel, just one prototype at that. But everything worked out well! :D

Since the beginning of this project I've had a theory that every amputee wishes that something could be done to how the prosthetic fits in a airplane seat. I'm 1.88m (6 Ft 2") tall so there is never enough space for me inside an airplane. Eventough I technically can fit inside a airplane seat the problem now after the accident is the range of bend in the knee. The fact that I can't bend more past the 90 degrees without the socket cutting in to my knee is the main reason that I can't fit inside the seat. But when removing the foot seated inside a airplane I can finally say that I'm able to sit comfortably. It allows me to have more space, and leaving the socket connected to the linear reduces the risk of swelling from the reduced pressure as well as long flights when traveling.
