General Discussion / Attention Please
« on: November 13, 2008, 10:58:06 AM »
Good Morning,
I just deleted all the political topics.  I really enjoyed the bantering back and forth, however the election is over. 

We have hundreds of members that do not contribute to the forum.  I think some of that is because we run astray discussing politics, the national debt and other subjects unrelated to prosthetics. 

My goal for this forum is to provide information that amputees can use to better their lives.  For all of you that contribute I am very grateful and know that when you are discussing prosthetics you are benefiting other amputees.

Thank you,
Michael Love

General Discussion / Proprio Foot
« on: June 03, 2008, 09:41:58 AM »
Hi everyone,
I thought you may find this interesting.  We just experienced walking a bk amp on an Ossur Proprio Foot.

The person we put it on is a 47 year old male, an amputee of about twenty years from a motorcycle accident.  He's been a client of mine for many years and has had a number of prostheses.  Tom is very active and an excellent walker but like most amputees finds walking on uneven surfaces a challenge.  After some initial set up time Tom was walking very well, up and down inclines, steps and flat surfaces.  Tom then took the prosthesis outside between our building and the one next door.  The ground there is very uneven and scattered with gravel and rocks of different sizes.  He never slowed down a second and walked with ease, no matter what the surface. 

I asked Tom what is was like to experience walking in the Proprio Foot and his words were, "friggin awesome, if I tried this with any other foot I'd be on my rearend by now".  It was a great experience and so nice to see Tom respond so well and so quickly to the new foot.

General Discussion / New forum, new website
« on: March 25, 2008, 10:33:34 AM »
Thanks to all of you for working with the new forum.  It's so nice for me not to have to delete all the unwanted postings like on the old forum.  Or goal in the future is to have the postings sorted under subjects for ease of reference.

We are also renovating the whole website, with new stuff and a better look.  I expect to have it all done within a month.  Any thoughts or ideas from you guys are welcomed.  I've already rewritten "How to Choose a Prosthetist", although it's not on the current website.  I am thinking of a "Rate Your Prosthetist" section.  There is already a "Rate Your Doctor" website, so this may be a helpful source for amputees.  I really need your input on this one though.  Should I do it?  What would that section of the website look like in terms of format, questions, opinions etc.

I just saw a segment on Dustin on CBS Sunday Morning and googled this article written about him. He is a remarkable young man!
