Rehabilitation of congenital lower limb deficiencies remains a challenge. A four-year-old boy presented with bilateral lower limb deficiency since birth and inability to stand. Orthoprosthesis with modified bucket type socket accommodating the right rudimentary limb, connected by a tubular shank and a modified foot piece on right side was prescribed. The left side of socket was incomplete inferiorly for the limb to pass through. An additional left Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) was also prescribed. The child achieved independent standing as well as started taking steps with a rollator.
