As 2017 draws to a close, we wanted to take a moment to reflect upon an amazing year. As LIM Innovations has continued to grow to meet the unique and diverse needs of the limb loss/ limb difference community, our core commitments to empowering the community through innovation and philanthropic outreach have remained unchanged.
With the struggles and frustrations of an ill-fitting socket eliminated through our adjustable technology, amputees across the country are rediscovering the freedom that comes from seamless comfort. As more people are utilizing our adjustable Infinite sockets, LIM Innovations has experienced exponential growth in our social media communities. Our Facebook following has increased an astounding 95% over the past year! If you are not already connected with us, we invite you to join our growing Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram communities.
Our commitment to innovation continues, demonstrated by the release of our new medial relief brim in November. The brim, which conforms better to the residual limb using new proprietary materials, enhances the moldable experience for patients and clinicians alike while maintaining its structural integrity. Through improved materials, internal durability is strengthened while reducing the bulk by 50% medially. This reduces the overall socket proportions, improved medial relief and support minimizes medial pinching for the patient allowing for unparalleled day-to-day comfort.
In addition to empowering the community through our adjustable Infinite sockets, LIM Innovations has reached beyond our borders to assist those struggling in developing countries. Through our sponsorship of Range of Motion Project (ROMP) through the Atlas Run app, LIM Innovations has donated $1000 towards the prosthetic needs for those living in Central America.
On December 14th the San Francisco HQ of LIM Innovations was transformed into a holiday wonderland. Decorations and food were abundant as we hosted our Party With Purpose. With more than 200 tickets claimed for the event, we were proud to highlight two nonprofits with admirable missions. Because of the generosity of the donors in attendance, communities were transformed. Capping our fundraising efforts for 2017, we were able to raise more than $6,000 for Upright Africa and ROMP.
Thank you for allowing LIM Innovations to be part of your life. We are approaching 2018 with both excitement and optimism. Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!
