Introduction: How to Put a New Foot on Your Prosthesis.

Hey! I'll show you how to put a new foot on the prosthesis.

Step 1: You Will Need...

A large metal shoehorn (These can possibly be gotten from your doctor.)
The new foot
And..... Your prosthesis!

Step 2:

Step 3: Pulling Apart

Pull the little thing attached to your foot. After digging at it, it should pop off.

Step 4: Removal of the Foot

Take the shoehorn and pull the foot off like it is a stubborn shoe.

Step 5: Clean the Sock

Pull the sock off. CLEAN IT!! Then pull that thing you popped off off the foot.

Step 6: Put the Thing Back On

Take the thing you pulled off and put it back over the foot. You can put the socks back on I'd advise you to.

Step 7: Almost Done

Slide the new foot on the metal prosthetic like it's a shoe. You will definitely need the shoe horn.

Step 8: One Last Thing

Snap the two pieces together with the arrow on the ring type thing facing the toes this may take a minute because the foot is so squishy.

Step 9: Done!

hooray you have finally finished putting your foot on the prosthesis. Please vote.

    Because of my simple ignorance, what is the inner sock for?
    Nicely put together instructable! Thank you for sharing your frugality and independence :)

    I believe the sock is to help prevent dirt and grime from rusting the metal foot. Thanks for the nice comment!
