Learn. Share. Live.
Sharing experiences, challenges, and fears with others can reveal solutions, hope, and new possibilities.
Beyond clinical care, we connect people to one another through AMPOWER®, a peer-to-peer support program and online community for people with limb loss or limb difference.
The mission of AMPOWER is to empower and strengthen those affected by amputation or limb difference through peer mentorship, education, and community. It consists of a nationwide network of trained peer mentors who have successfully recovered and rehabilitated following amputation and want to share their personal experiences with you.
AMPOWER peer mentors can connect with you and your loved ones in person, over the phone, or online. They can help:
- Answer a range of basic questions about the recovery process, using a prosthesis, and the concerns of daily living
- Provide emotional support, with a firsthand understanding of the grieving process
- Share information and resources

New YouTube Series
“One Arm Between Us” is our new YouTube series where we discuss issues affecting the limb loss and limb difference community.
There are a range of organizations that provide support for individuals with limb loss, mobility difficulties, and other health issues.
Our glossary of orthotic and prosthetic terms can help familiarize you with common terms and shorthand frequently used in the clinic setting.
Limb loss and mobility difficulties can have an effect on everyone involved, including family members and caregivers. Finding the right support is key.
