“Will I ever be able to walk again?”
Nobody wants to find themselves having to
ask this question;
yet there are over 500 amputations
performed every day in the United States.
With today’s modern physical and occupational therapy options, the answer is...YES
this treatment comes at a price that many new amputees can’t meet, due to associated medical costs, the cost of a prosthesis, or loss of income.
If they try learning on their own, the result is frustration. They give up…putting their new prosthetic device away…and choosing a less mobile option
like crutches or a wheelchair.
Their independence declines,
and their confidence dwindles.
That’s why Abled Amputees of America, a company founded in 2013 to inspire, support and educate amputees is excited to now have a second organization, a 501(c)3 non-profit designation which will be called
The Abled Amputees Foundation.
We are now able to stand in the gap to raise funds and help remove
the financial burden of this critical therapy.
With your help, we can get amputees walking again.
Medicaid services don’t cover physical therapy in many states. The average cost of a private pay therapy visit is $150, and doctors recommend at least 6 to 10 visits for amputees with a new below the knee prosthesis.
This quickly adds up to at least $900
— and this is where we can make a meaningful difference.
