I-Limb hand, We love it

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone!! Im 20 years old and im from philadelphia. My husband lost his hand in a terrible accident last year. He have lots of questions for any below the elbow amputee. Every where we go like the prosthetic, they are below the knee amputees. We understand that for both is a lost but he really would like to talk to some just like him. Also, he have the new I-limb hand, i must say is miracle, is the first generation of "bionic" hands and is in a good path. Well if anyone out there, below the elbow amputee or similar to him please, please, answer this post. Any curiosity about the i-limb hand!! questions are welcome!! God bless everyone reading this!!

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Upper extremity amputees do seem to be in the minority most places... there are simply "more" of us leg amps. We do have some arm amputees, though, and I'm sure you'll find some good fellowship here.

Thank you Cheryl!!

Yes, thats what i asked to his prostetist, he said that mostly the patients that lose a leg is because of diabetes, and then another percent accidents and another percent because of an infection, and so on so forth.

I really hope i find someone, this is one of the most active forums for amputees that i have find and i hope that my hard search give me some results!

Thank you again Cheryl and God bless!!

Hi!! Glad to have you(2). :D I know of a couple of arm amps. One local and another from Holland named Benoit Pauwels who races motocross. Ben's amputation is through the shoulder and watching him ride is spectacular!

BTW, what kinda name is "just.his.wife" ??!! :blink: Probably a gross understatement, in my experience! :lol:

I guess it's that word "just." ;) From what I've seen, rarely is the spouse of an amp "just" a spouse. In my case, Cassie is my biggest supporter, fan, and best friend. I couldn't do what I do without her.

Plus, if i called her "just my wife," I would expect a flying object to the cranium in very short order. :blink:

<_< To MY understandmet, the nickname, is what it is, just a nick name, and doesnt apply to my personal life with my husband and in anyway you put it a wife that has been with her husband thru thin and thik specially in a situation so delicate like losing a limb where you really now who is who, i wife that stays thru all the process is fan, bestfriend and supporter no matter how is she and much less for a nick name. <_<
