We are honored to give back through our diverse philanthropic commitments. Whether it be through the sponsoring of a local support group’s endeavors or by organizing a Climb for ROMP to raise awareness and funds to service amputees in developing countries, we are proud to stand behind the limb loss community. One of our most important philanthropic arms is through our relationship with the Amputee Coalition.
LIM Innovations is a proud to be a National Sponsor for the Amputee Coalition. Through our sponsorship, we are supporting the organization’s community outreach and education. Earlier this month the Amputee Coalition hosted their National Conference, one of their most visible and highly anticipated community outreach efforts, in Louisville KY. We were delighted to both sponsor and exhibit at this amazing event.
Our LIM Legend Ambassadors arrived in KY a few days before the National Conference in order to complete the Certified Peer Visitor Program (CPV). We believe strongly in the power of mentoring and encourage our representatives to become CPVs through the Amputee Coalition. We were honored to sponsor our Ambassadors through the course and are proud to report that they all received their certifications.
During the three-day conference our LIM Legend Ambassadors met with hundreds of amputees, forging new friendships and answering questions about the Infinite fully adjustable sockets. Our booth received a steady flow of traffic throughout the event. We enjoyed meeting new friends and reconnecting with those who have already decided to #DitchTheSocks and are currently wearing our product.
We were delighted to host formal presentations designed to educate the community about the personal and medical benefits behind using our fully adjustable sockets. After the presentation our LIM Legends fielded a variety of questions from the audience. We provided a live stream of the presentation through our Facebook profile.
Although there were over 1,000 people in attendance at conference, we recognize that the majority of the limb loss community was not able to travel to KY for the event. In an effort to include the greater community into the experience, we hosted a series of Facebook Live videos throughout the conference. All of our live stream videos, including those from our presentation, are archived on our Facebook page.

“For 6 days I was immersed into a world that was understanding. For one whole week I lived, breathed and existed in 100% understanding without one single word having to be spoken. A world where I was not the oddball, monster or weird one. The intact were (which really helped my husband understand at a new level). The words that were impossible to conjure were on every face that walked, crutched, or hopped by me, the layers of pain, failure and triumph in every eye.”
