It never fails when I am out and about and a child see me they turn to their mom and point, "That man has no legs!" Sometimes I smile and wave, sometimes I ignore it and sometimes I just say, "I can hear you." No matter what I do, I try and take it as a sign that there isn't enough exposure of #amputees in America. So here I am world! Just a #disabled#boywithoutlegs trying to make it in this messed up world and keep his sense of #humor - #Amputee on the rocks
Watch Andrew Joseph Montgomery stars in the bigfoot thriller, 'Primal Rage' in theatres this month. He also performs in physically demanding show, 'La Reve' in Las Vegas. This guy is truly inspirational - after a motorcycle accident that crippled his foot, he had to make a life-changing decision to amputate - but that hasn't stopped him from working for and making his dreams a reality. ⠀
Oh Debbie, you’re so pretty. Her stump is completely healed and she uses the part she has left very well. She can run just as fast as her housemate, Finn. She lost her foot and ankle before she came to me. It’s taken a couple of months and lots of bandaging and hydrotherapy to get her to this point but she’s such a trooper. I honestly believe her stubborn and feisty attitude saved her life. She’s a determined little monkey! ❤️🦔 #hedgehog#hedgehogrescue#amputee#debbieharry#wildlife#wildliferescue#vetnurse
Yeah hes nude but this isnt really sexual? More so sweet. So im not saying thisnis nsfw. This is the art I was struggling with so much. If you've seen other art of Meeka, you be seen the Jimmy rigged prosthetic he had for his leg, the metal pole hay was essentially fused to what was left of his need, and eventually it comes loose and caused him a great deal of pain. Avacos ends up being able to get him a proper one, as seen in my most recent Meeka art, but he's without any prosthetic for a few weeks while he heals. During this time he is insecure and uncomfortable with himself as he has no independence and feels incomplete. Abbie can fix that though. Abbie loves him no matter what and finds him just as beautiful now as before. This helps Meeka come to terms with this and leads him to better accepting himself even after the new prosthetic is used. I love them.
ALSO REALIZED I FORGOT TO COLOUR ABBIES TEETH ON WHITE. OH WELL. R.I.P #avacos#avacostourne#monsteroc#monsterboys#gaycouple#artistsofinstagram#art#myart#originalcharacter#originalcharacters#blueskin#prostheticleg#amputee#ilovemysons#anime#manga#idrailm#species#isuckatbackgroundssorry lol
Today I'm excited to share an interview with Melanie Waldman (@whereswaldman), a yoga student AND teacher practicing with an upper extremity amputation. Melanie shared not only how she learned to modify her practice, but how yoga helped her through her emotional recovery after her amputation. (Blog post link in bio.)
Our first collection (womenswear) has been designed and we are almost ready to start the sampling process BUT FIRST we need your help. We have created some surveys. Each has 2-3 designs with some questions for you to answer.
This may be useful if you are a wheelchair user; an ileostomy or cath bag user; have cerebral palsy; are an amputee; have EDS or arthritis; or are a T1 diabetic.
Please email email@example.com to request a survey, which will be sent to you as a word doc. If possible, please state your impairment and we will send you the most relevant survey.
If you do not have a disability but would like to review some clothes with added functionality, you are still welcome to participate.
Uma amputação não deve significar o fim de uma carreira esportiva.
Isso é provado todos os dias por atletas paralímpicos e recreativos protetizados. A prótese de corrida esportiva atende suas necessidades especiais, como a lâmina 1E90, que possui contorno com mola de carbono para gerar uma alta propulsão, e o joelho 3S80, com princípio hidráulico de rotação patenteado já familiar na Prótese de Joelho 3R80. Além disso, o joelho que é compacto e robusto, e possui uma trava manual.
Mesmo em ritmo acelerado de passadas, uma parada harmoniosa é assegurada pelo amortecimento constante ao longo de todo movimento de extensão, aumentando de forma significativa pouco antes de atingir a posição final de repouso.

January 12, 2017 my right leg was amputated below my knee. January 13, 2018 I competed in a full power USPA meet and as far as I know I’m only the second amputee to do a full power meet other than @that1legmonster I ended up going 7 for 9, totaling 1,074 lbs. capped off by a lifetime PR 485 deadlift at 191 bw. I could’ve done alot of things better but for my first meet I’m pretty happy with how things went. I have alotta people to thank, most of all my wife and family for supporting me thru this last crazy year. The folks @care_prosthetics for getting me back up on two legs. And everyone in the back room @maxed_out_gym for putting up with me asking a million questions for the past month or so. @pioneer_fit for coming thru with my new belt in time for the meet. And @apemanstrong for the awesome overcome shirt, perfect shirt for me today. Can’t wait to get back to training. PS @that1legmonster I’m comin for ya!! #amputee#livesoreadaptive#noexcuses
