Climbing For ROMP

July 13th, 2017 | News and PR

Giving back to the limb loss community is a core value of LIM Innovations. We were founded with the premise that amputees should be enabled, not limited, through their prosthesis. We developed the Infinite TF and Infinite TT sockets to empower amputees by giving them the ability to adjust their sockets to suit the needs of their activity and body. Putting comfort through adjustability first, LIM Innovations has helped hundreds of amputees redefine the prosthetic experience.
Our commitment to the limb loss community transcends our patient base. We are proud to host monthly community events in our San Francisco office which are open to everybody in the amputee community and their supporters, regardless of the level of limb loss or the devices that they utilize. Our events focus on a different experience each month, encouraging amputees to reach beyond their comfort zone in a safe and supportive environment. This week (Sunday, July 16) we are hosting an adapted boxing clinic. If you are in the San Francisco area, please join us for this interactive and fun activity.  Please email George at [email protected] to register.
Being a global steward for limb loss empowerment is a corporate priority for LIM Innovations. In this spirit, we are proud to support Range of Motion Project (ROMP). 80% of the world’s amputees live in developing countries. Currently only 2% of this population have access to even basic prosthetic care. ROMP works tirelessly to fill the void by providing prosthetics to individuals in these developing regions. By empowering an amputee in a developing country through providing a prosthetic, ROMP is changing the lives of the individual and the welfare of the entire family.
We have partnered with Atlas Run to raise funds for ROMP. For each mile logged, LIM Innovations donates to ROMP, directly impacting amputees in developing countries. The Atlas Run app is now available for both Android and iOS devices, and we invite you to join our global movement.
On August 26th, LIM Innovations is hosting a Golden Gate Bridge Climb as part of a global fundraising event for ROMP.  The hike will take place along the Presido's  Golden Gate Bridge Promenade trail and will span roughly three miles. Our waterfront “climb” traverses through San Francisco’s most iconic locations: The Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Crissy Field, and the Marin Headlands. We have chosen a route which is entirely wheelchair accessible.
We invite individuals from all ability and disability levels to join us in this global movement. Information about the Golden Gate Bridge Climb can be found here and on our Facebook event page.  If you can’t participate but would like to support our efforts, please consider making a tax-deductible donation through our Crowdfunding page.

While we are hiking in San Francisco, climbs are being hosted across the world in solidarity for ROMP and to support amputees in developing countries.  If you would like to participate but don’t live in or near San Francisco, you can find information about other climbs here.  Please share your climbing photos with us through our social channels so that we can publicly applaud your efforts!
We empower our patients through the development of sockets which adjust to the needs of the patient. We strengthen our local community by hosting monthly events. We strive to change the world and the lives of amputees in developing countries through our support and fundraising efforts for ROMP.  LIM Innovations accomplishes giving back through empowering the community through a variety of efforts, each as unique as the members of the limb loss community.
