Michelle Adams Testimonial
*Testimonial from: Patient’s Mother
Dear Jayson and Theo,
Dave and I wanted to express our thanks and appreciation for your efforts, vision and hard work in creating Jamie’s new prosthetic.
Jamie is loving her new socket and leg, appreciating being able to wear clothes again and is slowly reclaiming back her own style and self-image.
She is progressing from strength to strength and is indeed a remarkable individual.
A special thank you to Theo, who is not only a great prosthetist but a special individual.
Geoff Carey Testimonial
In the almost 20 years as an amputee, I can count on one hand the number of prosthetists that have managed to get me walking comfortably. Jayson Chin has been home to two of these wonderful artists, unfortunately, one passed last year and one remains. I am extremely thankful to Theo for his patience and tolerance as I am probably not a very easy patient.
My experience with Jayson Chin spans some 6 years. I moved to Cape Town and needed to find a new prosthetist and start the refit process. Dave Herman crafted a refit that allowed me to get moving and maintain mobility. Dave was able to put together a solution from the vast array of alternatives liners, sockets, feet, etc. that suited by a sensitive stump. I enjoyed good mobility until my stump shape changed in 2016. At this time, I suffered skin breakdowns and was unable to wear the prosthesis eventually – staying off my leg for many months.
In October 2016, Theo made a new test socket based on updated components. We had a few problems with fit and skin breakdown and this led to further changes in liner and the need to go through the refit process again in June 2017. In spite of these challenges, I was blessed to have support from Jayson’s awesome staff and Jayson’s commitment to getting it right in the end. The patience paid off and I now have a useable leg again, with new technology liners and high mobility.
I really appreciate the efforts and dedication of the team, both at the front end as well as the fabrication and behind the scenes team members, to facilitate the successful end result.
I can wear my leg with pride and confidence, knowing that it was well designed, constructed and it also looks cool!
Rodney & Maria Lakay Testimonial
Our journey to recovery with Chin & Partners.
My wife and I were involved in a horrific accident in Knysna on the 25th of September 2014. Twenty days later we were transferred to the Life Rehab centre at Vincent Pallotti Hospital in Pinelands. Here we continued with our rehabilitation process as both of us lost our legs; mine both above knee and my wife 1 above and 1 below knee. We were visited by Justin Rix and the late Dave Herman from Chin and Partners to start the shaping process of our limbs. in the beginning of 2015 we went for casting and in June of 2015 we went for our first fitting. Since then we had tremendous progress due to the professional assistance of Theo Kriel our prosthetist and the assistance of our physio Erin. I believe the motivation of Jayson Chin and the fact that we are treated as their only patients helped us in achieving the successes we had so far. Thank you guys for doing what you do best.

Erick Oosthuizen Testimonial
I have found Chin & partners to be extremely caring and professional since the day I was introduced to them in hospital. Jayson in particular understood my active lifestyle and made sure that all the planning, pre-amputation, took this into account. Jayson and Justin share my passion for cycling and their willingness to help me succeed and redefine my life, makes this trying chapter of my life that much more bearable! To Justin, Jayson, Theo and Janice in particular a big thank you! Upwards and onwards!
Helga Barkhuizen Testimonial
Most people know this saying: Two things define you: your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything. When I lost my lower left leg and severely shattered my right, I didn’t have time to muster patience as Jayson Chin & Associates were already on my hospital room doorstep a mere day following my accident. It’s been almost four years since our first encounter including four prosthetic’s and two braces down the line. I requested the best South African hospital for the type of injuries sustained and they delivered more than 100%. Friendly, courteous, patient, incredibly talented, gracious, professional, fun cultured and all round great people describe this organisation. Many people talk a big game, but they deliver, on time, every time with the best product and comfort fit. Today, I walk without a brace, crutches, no physio required, back pain, stump sores or abnormalities and lastly with a positive attitude. Thanks for being the best in the business! You’re my real life heroes!
Sean Dale Testimonial
Jayson, Theo and the team have given me and continue to provide outstanding support following my through-knee amputation. They have taken on all the challenges arising from my particular needs and always put my comfort and concerns above any commercial issues which they may have had. They have many times gone out of their way and made time for me, whether to visit me while in recovery in the hospital and answer questions, or squeezing me into a busy schedule to do make quick adjustments on my prosthesis. A great service provided by great individuals.
Ben de Jager Testimonial
Amputation is one of the most unfortunate, life-changing and disfiguring possibilities of life. If you are fortunate enough to meet the team at Chin & Partners, you will soon realize that it only gets better from that point, way better! All the problems associated with limb-loss can become minimal and manageable. I am forever grateful to you guys (the whole team) for making good life possible.
