As Amputees we face obscure and normal challenges every day, limbloss is there to provide assistance through peer networking and groups to provide valuable information to each other as we navigate through the process.
Becoming and Amputee is becoming more common in the world we live in, limbloss is striving to make the ability to find resources, communicate with other, recover and realize ether dreams easier then it has been in the past
We believe that through support and communication each Amputee will feel more connected to their community and know they are not alone, this, we hope will be an important factor to aid in recovery
Through the collaborative efforts of limbloss, the professionals and the community resources, each individual will fid the strength and support to become active, reach their personal goals and strive to become just as, or even better then they were before their life changing procedure.
In the future, Limbloss hopes to bridge the gap between health care providers and people, pre-operative, Post-operative, rehabilitation and recovery.
We will work to provide assistance to all people facing the difficult decision of “what to do” in the case of limb failure…as well as be there to provide the necessary help and comfort to those in traumatic cases.
We will also work to provide education and resources to people who in the event of illness or disease are facing possible limb loss on how to prolong a traumatic event.
**A Message from the coordinator
After 14 years of being an Amputee, I have found that I have learned and navigated life as an amputee.
With this knowledge I feel I am now in charge of my life as an Amputee, I have worked tirelessly on firstly reaching the potential I thought I could, and then surpassing that and becoming a better Amputee, and realizing some dreams and goals.
With this knowledge and power, I feel it’s now my time to lend and share with the community of amputees as well as their support systems, health care providers and government officials, it is my duty as a part of this community to give back to those who struggle and provide some light and an open door to our world.
I want to make for certain and promise that from this point forward I will work endlessly so that no person who is faced with the decision or the experience of becoming an amputee is left feeling the same way I was all those years ago, alone and unsure of what is to come…

Peter is able to offer his patients state of the art technology which includes computer controlled knees, myo electrics arms, elevated vacuum prostheses and Marlo style (MAS) sockets. Peter has a very unique approach to the practice of prosthetics, developed through his experience gained around the world.
As a prosthetist Matt really enjoys getting to know his patients and developing a personalized care plan for everyone. This is evolved through a thorough assessment. Prosthetic design is discussed with every one he sees which includes suspension method, liner choice, socket design, foot and knee selection and cosmetic design. Patient input and follow up are crucial in his development of care.
He is very well versed in the latest prosthetic technology and is constantly re-evaluating his practice and furthering his education to ensure he is delivering the best possible care.
As the Amputee Support Coordinator, he looks to create a network of resources to provide each person with individualized care and help as they navigate life.
Through Limb Loss Chris will be creating an ongoing program that will connect the amputee community and bring awareness to the challenges that exist so that we can all learn and grow from each other.
