I have been struggling with the amputation for years until my Prosthetist in Hawaii VA showed me a centerfold of Wired Magazine and it sent me on a mission. I had to have one! Since then, I have had the honor to work with the awesome team at LIM Innovations. These guys/gals are really smart, ingenious and caring. They aren’t afraid to try new things and have the courage to implement them. I was really struggling with tissue and fluid fluctuation. No problem with this team! I am presently training & recruiting amputees for the September World T.E.A.M. Sports Challenge in Colorado. Each team (2 able bodied & 3 handicapped) repel off a mountain, hike, bike & white water raft, competing internationally. LIM innovations made this possible!
