Quality of Life is Back
Ursula Schlesselmann proudly shows her cosmetic upper arm prosthesis. “It looks so deceptively real! My friends are as excited as I am,” laughs Ursula Schlesselmann from Hamburg. "The prosthesis has given me back my quality of life, she says today."

Ursula Schlesselmann has been wearing a prosthesis since her accident 19 years ago. She is now using a cosmetic arm prosthesis, a so-called passive arm prosthesis. Its external appearance is more important than what it can do. She is enjoying this summer to the fullest – in short sleeves! She could even paint the fingernails of her new prosthesis with nail polish if she wanted, but she prefers to put a silver arm band around her wrist, because she believes that “it is more in line with my taste.”

If you ask her about sports, Ursula Schlesselmann begins to rave. Being a passionate tennis player and bicycle rider, she is always on the move. She just came back from a 5-day bicycle tour – with 180 more miles on the speedometer. But the 65-year-old does not have time to rest.  In a few minutes she’ll be headed to the next tennis match.

Since Ursula Schlesselmann loves nature, she likes to spend every free minute outdoors. She may take a boat ride on the lake or a long walk on a sunny day, and her husband always has the camera ready to catch and preserve the beautiful moments.
