New Resource For Amputees

 

For 110 years, WillowWood has been serving amputees through the design and development of prosthetics such as the Alpha® Liner and LimbLogic®. We’ve just released our new Amputee Resource Center. This center is an online community where amputees and caregivers can learn about prosthetics, access how-to guides, submit ideas for making life better for amputees, and more. Visitors will also find helpful links to organizations, such as OPAF & the First Clinics, and suggestions on what to do with prosthetic devices that are no longer needed.

 

We invite you to visit our new Amputee Resource Center from the comfort of your own home! Visit today!
