If you’re looking for a new exercise routine, look no further than spinning. A study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry found that the high-intensity workout might help treat depression or anxiety. https://zurl.co/S2oW

Joining an amputee support group is one of the best decisions you will make. But not all groups can give you the support you need. If you notice any of these red flags, it’s best to consider leaving this group.

Prosthetic suspension is a critical aspect of any system. Everyone's suspension challenges are unique. Regardless of whether you wear a vacuum system, prosthetic belt, locking liner or suction socket, if you have a question about prosthetic suspension now's your time to ask.

We're back with another #ThrowbackThursday post! (continuation)

With our new mannequin, we created 5 amputation levels ranging from partial foot/symes to below-knee to above-knee and below-elbow. The mannequin took us a total of 2 weeks to create. Next, was the product photoshoot with the mannequin which took place within four 12-hour days. #TBT

“For amputees, the benefits of exercise go beyond weight management and keeping health concerns at bay. It is the cure to many of the most common physical issues, such as being off balance, aching hips and backs, and a feeling that residual limbs are not robust enough to support your body weight. Simply put, regular exercise helps the body become stronger, allowing anyone to live as comfortably as possible.” https://zurl.co/nonW

Is it your first time to get a prosthesis? Or are you getting a new one? That’s great! But there’s one more thing you have to prepare for: possible skin irritation. Don’t worry, you can prevent it. https://zurl.co/JIgJ
