        I truly appreciate your wife's determination and desire, as humans we are highly adaptable to changes IF we allow our minds to accept the changes. With that said, I would recommend that she get more familiar and comfortable with her prosthetic before trying to ride again.

        On the old Clinic we had a member named Cody who I happened to be personal friends with. A good young man and a good riding buddy. He and his girlfriend were on the bike on their way to church on a Wednesday evening when an impatient idiot made a left turn in front of him. Cody lost his left foot just above the ankle, but had too many issues with a non-articulating prosthetic so he went back in for another surgery where they took enough of the stump off to accommodate an articulating foot. Six months later with jeans on you couldnt tell when he was walking that he was disabled and with a heal-toe shifter he had no issues riding again. All of that to say that when your wife is comfortable and familiar with her device, I believe she will be comfortable riding again.

        just my 1/2 pennies worth,

        Rod

          I am just getting back into riding after losing my left leg below the knee in 2015.
          At first I thought about using a 12volt up down solenoid and mounting it back by the trans and put a simple up/down switch next to the clutch for shifting. But I think I can do the larger shifter on my silverado..
          I bought a roadstar that was in a light wreck and plan to rebuild it..
          I recently joined again ,,, I figured might as well go where like minded bike people are..
          the pics are of my new bike.... the one in 2015 was toast
