Your perfect fit for a more active lifestyle.
NEW AMPUTEE RESOURCES:
Learning to live with amputation can be an involved process. We are here to help you every step of the way. Education is a very important aspect of recovery, and a great starting point is the publication First Step – A Guide for Adapting to Limb Loss.
First Step is a publication from the Amputee Coalition and is an essential guide for all people who are coping with the challenges of limb loss. First Step offers reliable information and insights to help amputees make educated choices, get better services, and decide on available options.

AMPUTEE SUPPORT GROUPS:
In addition to education, we strongly encourage participation in Amputee Support Groups. Whether you are a new amputee learning the ropes, or an experienced wearer, Amputee Support Groups are an important part of the recovery process. These invaluable Support Groups provide a comforting place for new amputees, friends and family to connect with others who have overcome similar challenges. Below is a list of amputee support groups in the greater Philadelphia area.
