“Will I ever be able to walk again?”
Nobody wants to find themselves having to ask this question;
yet, there are over 500 amputations performed every day
in the United States.
With today’s modern physical and occupational therapy options, the answer is,
this treatment comes at a price that many new amputees can’t meet; due to associated medical costs, the cost of a prosthesis, or loss of income. If they try learning on their own, the result is frustration. They give up…putting their new prosthetic device away…and choosing a less mobile option like
crutches or a wheelchair.
Their independence declines, and their confidence dwindles.
That’s why Abled Amputees of America, a company founded in 2013 to inspire, support and educate amputees is excited to now have a 501(c) (3) non-profit designation! We can now stand in the gap to raise funds and help remove the financial burden of this critical therapy.
With your help, we can get amputees walking again.
Medicaid services don’t cover physical therapy in many states. The average cost of a private pay therapy visit is $150, and doctors recommend at least 6 visits for amputees with a new prosthesis. This quickly adds up to $900
— and this is where we can make a meaningful difference.

DID YOU KNOW?
The main causes of limb loss are vascular disease, including diabetes and peripheral arterial disease (54%), trauma (45%) and cancer (less than 2%).
African‐Americans are up to four times more likely to require an amputation than Caucasian Americans.
At the time of an amputation many patients have severe infections that require them to choose between amputation or loss of life.
