Moving Forward

At Abilities in Motion, we have the unique opportunity to create a community for our patients. On this page you can find stories, patient biographies, and amputee experiences to help spark hope for those facing or experiencing amputation. While individual situations vary, we strive to help our patients meet and exceed their goals.

What were your concerns about having a prosthetic limb?
