Today, amputees have access to more information than ever before. The internet plays a significant role by making resources available day or night, regardless of your location. Manufacturer websites, non-profit organizational websites and prosthetic-related message boards offer a wide scope of information about technology, life as an amputee, and healthcare issues. At freedom-innovations.com, we have worked to provide detail about our products and services so that you can make educated choices in collaboration with your prosthetist and healthcare team.
